President Obama and family arrive Martha's Vineyard for their final 2-week vacation as the First Family (photos)

President Barack Obama's seventh summer vacation at Martha's Vineyard has begun with hopes of getting in some relaxing time with the first family before the busy fall leading up to November's presidential election.
Obama will fill the next two weeks 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 like to keep a low profile on the island and were successful last summer, but past trips have not always been so relaxing.

The president interrupted the vacation several times in 2014 to address political developments in Iraq, the beheading of American journalist James Foley by Islamic State militants, and violent protests that erupted in Ferguson, Missouri, following the fatal shooting of an unarmed, 18-year-old black man by a white police officer.
