Honolulu, HI -- 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 Saturday. The first family departed the plane and left quickly for their vacation home.
Obama had shed the jacket he was wearing when he left Washington and was in a dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up.
The first family left Washington on Friday night.
White House officials say the president's vacation itinerary doesn't include any scheduled public events.
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.
