President Barack Obama and his family are set to escape Washington and head for Honolulu on Friday for their final holiday vacation as first family, the White House confirmed.
During their time in the White House, the Obamas have spent every Christmas on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, where Obama spent much of his childhood.
The Obamas are creatures of habit during their Hawaii vacations, usually staying in the sleepy town of Kailua ― about a 45-minute drive from the bustling tourist area of Waikiki. In the past, their rental homes have been the epitome of laid-back luxury.
The U.S. Coast Guard has set up a temporary security zone in Kailua, in effect from Friday morning until Jan. 2, according to Hawaii News Now.
