December 2013 - President Obama's Christmas Vacation in Hawaii
Since 2008, President Obama has been spending his Christmas holiday with his family in Kailua. A local news station has reported that the Obama family will leave D.C. on December 20th and stay through the New Year, with an expected departure date of January 5th. The Honolulu Police Department motorcycle unit was spotted in mid-November practicing their Presidential motorcade escort duty on the H-3 freeway near Kailua.
The Obama family has rented this home in 2011 and 2012 and is expected to return here in 2013. Here is a blog post from 2011 about the rental home.
