HONOLULU (AP) — The White House says President Barack Obama and his family will be traveling to Hawaii.
They are due to leave Washington Friday aboard Air Force One and arrive in Honolulu just after midnight Saturday.
The president doesn’t have any public events scheduled during his time back in the islands.
He’s expected to stay in the same Kailua neighborhood where he has spent the year-end holidays since he was president elect.
In previous years, the president has played golf, visited Hanauma Bay and ventured into Kailua town for shave ice.
Obama was born in Honolulu. The Punahou School graduate spent most of his childhood on Oahu until he left for the mainland to attend college.
