The White House announced today that President Barack Obama and his family will travel to Honolulu next Friday for his final Hawaii holiday vacation as president.

Obama is expected to attend meetings at the White House on Dec. 16, then depart with his family for the islands that evening, according to the White House Press Office.

On Dec. 27, the president is scheduled along with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to visit Pearl Harbor.

Abe last week said he would visit Hawaii to pray for the war dead and to hold a final summit meeting with the president.
