President Barack Obama and family have returned to Washington, but his next visit to Hawaii may be sooner than the end-of-the-year holiday season.

The president is expected to attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting in mid-November. Leaders of several other countries will join Obama in Honolulu.

Obama arrived in Washington on Tuesday after a nearly two week vacation in Hawaii, where he was born and mostly raised. On his vacation, the president golfed several rounds, went to the beach, worked out and spent time with his friends and family.

On his Air Force One flight night back to the nation’s capitol, Obama told reporters that he’ll return for the APEC gathering.

He said, "That’ll be a big event. Everybody’s pretty excited about that."
