Obama and family arrive in Hawaii for Christmas

KAILUA, Hawaii — President Barack Obama and his family have arrived in Honolulu to spend Christmas in Hawaii, where the president was born and raised.

Air Force One touched down in Honolulu minutes after midnight local time today. The first family departed the plane and traveled quickly to their vacation house in the beach town of Kailua, a scenic, sleepy beach town on the east side of Oahu.

Kailua is roughly 12 miles from downtown Honolulu. Obama’s vacation house sits near a Marine base, on the north end of a five-mile stretch of beach popular among windsurfers and paddle surfers.

No return date has been given by the White House. Obama himself said earlier Friday that, since a deal hasn’t been reached to avert the so-called “fiscal cliff,” he would be returning to Washington after Christmas.
