Obama Family Plans Hawaii Vacation For Sixth Straight Year


The Obamas will make their annual holiday trip to Hawaii around December 20, a source told Hawaii News Now. According to HNN, First Lady Michelle Obama and First Daughters Sasha and Malia will arrive around the 20th and the family will return to Washington on Jan. 5.

The Obamas have spent the holidays in Hawaii for the past five years.

Last year, the First Family rented a home in Kailua on Oahu’s eastern shore. President Obama golfed at the Marine Corps Base Hawaii and at Turtle Bay Resort. He took his daughters bowling at the Marine base and out for shave ice at Island Snow in Kailua. The family ate dinner at Nobu and at Buzz’s Steakhouse, and spent a lot of low key time at their rented beach house. They even brought First Dog Bo.

The White House has not yet released the Obama’s itinerary for this year’s trip. We expect they will visit many of the same local favorites -- and maybe Obama will give beach goers a repeat show of his body surfing prowess.

Take a look at the Obama’s 2012-2013 Hawaii vacation.
