well you have options. i know you have a car so........
if you are into a busy city, thats packed and completely crowded, you can live in downtown honolulu, but like i said the streets are a royal pain in the a$$ and , ALOT of people but definitely alot of nightlife.
if you want to live close to the base, you can move to the city of aeia (correct my spelling if im wrong jkribell), which is nice and its less congested.
personally i lived on the north shore for 3 years, which is absolutely awesome, its a totally different side of the island and the people are completely different. you can live in either waialua or haleiwa, and that is where all the beauty really is.
the east side of the island is breathtakingly beautiful, theres little towns all along it like hauula, kahuku, etc, but the drive into work would be an issue for you.
personally i would suggest living on the north shore where the vibe is good and the beach is beautiful, its about a 30 minute drive from the base roughly speaking.
whatever you choose, there is a TON of stuff to do out there, kayaking, surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, skydiving, cliff jumping, spear fishing, boat fishing, rock climbing, shark cage diving, kite surfing, paragliding, and im going to stop typing before i get carpel tunnel.
i will let jkribell further elaborate on whatever i missed.......
have fun levyii!!!!!!!!
Gravity brings me down....
