The Martha’s Vineyard Times reports that a three-week vacation starts this weekend, and the former first family will be staying in Chilmark.

The Obamas made summer escapes to the Vineyard in seven of the eight years they spent at the White House.

The Boston Globe reports that Obama will have Secret Service protection but there likely won’t be a large fleet of armored SUVs and media horde now that he is out of office.
