About Aloha Valley

Las Vegas Hawaiian Connection

What’s The Attraction

Hawaii: Beautiful beaches, lush green rain forest, mild year around temperatures.  Las Vegas: Dry brown desert, scorching hot summers… Why do so many islanders move to Las Vegas?  Everyone’s situation is unique, although… lower cost of living, career opportunities, further education,  follow family members, military obligation, those are all popular reasons as to why former Aloha State residents make the journey.

Las Vegas is Hawaii residents #1 vacation destination. Head to downtown Las Vegas (Boyd Gaming Properties) and see for yourself. Hawaii Kama’aina love to gamble!

What’s The Connection

The Las Vegas Valley (Las Vegas, NV) is known as the 9th Island (Ninth Island) of Hawaii because so many former Hawaii Kama’aina (Locals) call the valley home. Census numbers are conflicting due to race/nationality grouping and by NV DMV. Reliable sources claim between 30,000 – 35,000 former Hawaii Locals live throughout the valley (Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson).

Add the rest of the island nation transplants (Samoa, Tonga, Tahiti, Guam, New Zealand, etc) to the group, now you’re looking at well over 70,000 Pacific Islanders. Add the Asian, (Filipino, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, etc) that number gets close to 200,000; Asian – Pacific Islanders.
