Obamas to visit Mount Desert Island
Washington, D.C. — President Barack Obama and his family will visit Maine next weekend, traveling to Mount Desert Island on Friday, July 16, and staying through Sunday, July 18, according to a press release from Congresswoman Chellie Pingree.
“What an honor that the Obama family has chosen Maine for vacation, when they could have gone anywhere in the country," said Pingree. "I think the Obamas will really enjoy the quiet woods, beautiful coast, wonderful people and everything else that brings thousands of families here every year. Those of us lucky enough to live here know it’s the most beautiful place in the world, and I’m glad we can share it with the first family.”
The Obamas' visit to Maine is a personal family vacation; no public appearances are reportedly scheduled.
