President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and two daughters Sasha and Malia are headed to Massachusetts this weekend for a vacation on Martha’s Vineyard. They are expected to return to the Chilmark area, where they vacationed last August. Martha’s Vineyard is a prime vacation spot for the people of Boston and Massachusetts and the Obamas have made an excellent choice.
Though the Vineyard residents are of course, gearing up for the president’s return, early reports say that this summer Mr. Obama will not ignite quite the media and people frenzy he did last August during his first summer as the new U.S. President. Maybe that’s a good thing for Obama. Looks like he could use a rest.
Martha’s Vineyard is a great place for a day trip, weekend or longer vacation
Martha’s Vineyard is an island off the coast of Cape, Cod, MA and is a favorite getaway spot for the famous as well as regular folk due to its great beauty, long coastline and availability of restaurants and summer activities.
The Vineyard is just far enough from the mainland for most visitors. It is only accessible via plane or a short ferry ride and each summer swarms of tourists visit the charming island for a respite form city life. From the remote multi colored clay cliffs at Gay Head, to down to earth VIneyard Haven and Oak Bluffs, along with upper crust Edgartown, Martha’s Vineyard offers a diverse vacation experience for all tastes and lifestyles.
Obama family travels this summer covered the U.S. and Spain
The Obamas have hit the road this summer. First, the president and his family spent a long weekend in Maine at Acadia National Park. Then, Michelle and Sasha traveled to Spain, where they made headlines for a rather lavish vacation there. (President Obama stayed at home while Malia was off at summer camp). Then, last weekend, in a bid to promote tourism in the Gulf Coast, the Obama family spent time at Panama City, Florida, complete with cute photos of the kids playing in the waves.
