Hawaiian Headlines: 2009 NFL Pro Bowl, Obama Visit Hawaii

There’s quite a bit going on in Hawaii this winter, and in case you weren’t lucky enough to book your vacation there yet, don’t worry. All these goings-on are only helping to increase Hawaii as a hot vacation destination for 2009. Luckily, though, the economic downturn has still kept Hawaii vacations and resorts affordable.

Perhaps the biggest news to increase Hawaiian Tourism in 2009 is President-Elect Barack Obama’s vacation in Hawaii this week. A veritable cottage industry surrounding all things Obama has sprung us this week. CBS News reports that narrated tours of Obama’s childhood, costing more than $40, are now big business in Honolulu. They stop at the apartment building he grew up in, a favorite lunch hangout and the local ice cream store. The fact that he’s been golfing there all week can only help the local links attract more vacation golfers.
