President Obama, First Family plan to vacation in Williamsburg this weekend

The leader of the free world may be coming to Williamsburg for some rest and relaxation if Congress is able to come to agreement on the budget. President Obama and the First Family are planning to visit the area this weekend in what the White House described Wednesday as a “long-planned family trip to Colonial Williamsburg.”

But the trip might get grounded if a government shutdown can’t be averted by Republicans and Democrats in Congress.

The announcement that Obama was coming generated excitement from Williamsburg Mayor Clyde Haulman. “I think it’s terrific. Williamsburg was voted as the number one family destination,” Haulman said. “The first family is coming to the first destination.”

Haulman said that he didn’t know where the Obamas would be staying or what was on their schedule. “I was just informed that they were coming. … I don’t know where they’re staying in Williamsburg,” Haulman said.
