BOSTON (CBS/AP) – President Obama and the First Family have arrived on Martha’s Vineyard for their final presidential getaway on Martha’s Vineyard.

The Obamas departed around 1 p.m. according to a White House pool report and arrived at the Cape Cod Coast Guard Air Station about an hour later.

President and Michelle Obama chatted with service members and families at the air station before boarding the Marine One helicopter for the short ride to Martha’s Vineyard.

Malia and Sasha made the trip with their parents, along with First Dogs Bo and Sunny.

The family has made Martha’s Vineyard their annual vacation destination. This summer, Obama will spend nearly three weeks on the island, filling the time with leisurely rounds of golf, beach outings, bike rides and hikes with his wife and daughters, and dinner with Mrs. Obama and their friends at some of the island’s top restaurants.

The Obamas are staying in the town of Chilmark, located on the more remote western end of the island, but the White House did not disclose the specific home. On recent trips, they have rented a seven-bedroom, 8,100-square-foot residence featuring views of Vineyard Sound, an infinity pool and a dual tennis-basketball court.

Meanwhile, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump made campaign stops in Nantucket and Osterville for fundraisers on Saturday.
