AIR STATION CAPE COD, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama has arrived in Massachusetts for his two-week summer vacation, which comes as the U.S. is engaged in airstrikes against Islamic militant targets in Iraq.

Obama and his family landed at a Coast Guard station on Cape Cod before heading to their final destination — Martha’s Vineyard.

Before leaving the White House, he told reporters that he was ready “to not have a suit on for a while.”

Obama is breaking up his vacation with a two-day return to Washington midway through the trip.

The president typically keeps a low-profile on his annual summer vacations. But he will headline a Democratic fundraiser on the island Monday night.

The president and his family are staying in a rented vacation house in the town of Chilmark.
