Obamas to return to Martha's Vineyard this summerJuly 12, 2013 @ 7:07 pm
WASHINGTON (AP) - It's back to the beach for President Barack Obama this summer.
The White House says the president and the first lady will return to Martha's Vineyard next month for a nine-day stay.
In keeping with White House policy, the vacation plans of their daughters were not disclosed Friday. In the past, daughters Sasha and Malia have joined their parents for trips to the Massachusetts island.
Officials say that the Obamas expect to arrive on Martha's Vineyard on Aug. 10 and leave on Aug. 18.
It will be Obamas' fourth summer vacation on Martha's Vineyard since he became president in 2009, though he has been visiting the area since the 1990s. Obama skipped a trip last year during his re-election campaign.
The Boston Globe first reported the Obamas' vacation plans.
