The Biden family spends the Thanksgiving holiday in Nantucket


CAPE COD, Massachusetts – The White House has confirmed reports that President Joe Biden celebrates Thanksgiving in Nantucket.

During Friday’s briefing, press secretary Jen Psaki said Biden and First Lady Jill Biden travel to the island on Tuesday, but did not provide further details.

Biden continues the decades-long family tradition of celebrating Turkey Day in Nantucket. He last spent the holiday in 2019 while campaigning for the Democratic nomination for president. In 2020, Biden enjoyed Thanksgiving at his Delaware home.

According to an announcement posted on the airport’s website, Nantucket Memorial Airport announced more security measures Friday through Sunday, with temporary changes to screening requirements for passengers, flight crews and unstable general airlines. Temporary flight restrictions will also be in place.

Presidential holidays in the Cape and the Islands are no stranger.

President John F. The Kennedy and Kennedy family have long been associated with Hyannisport in the Cape. President Barack Obama spent several summer vacations at Martha’s Vineyard while in office and subsequently bought a house on the island’s Edgartown. President Bill Clinton was vacationing in the Vineyard while he was in office.
