President Joe Biden and his family arrived on Nantucket Tuesday evening, kicking off their Thanksgiving tradition of traveling to the island almost every year since the 1970s.

BIDEN THANKSGIVING:

The family — including Biden’s son, Hunter Biden and his wife Melissa Cohen, daughter Ashley Biden, and several of their grandchildren — arrived at the Nantucket Memorial Airport on Air Force One around 7 p.m., according to White House pool reporters.

Biden has spent every Thanksgiving in Nantucket, except last year due to the coronavirus, and his yearly visits tend not to faze residents, who are used to his annual Thanksgiving celebrations on the island.

Despite being on his 46th visit to Nantucket, Biden does not own a house and stays in other homes, such as that of Democratic supporter David Rubenstein, or Louis Susman, ambassador to the United Kingdom under former president Barack Obama.

The family is expected to stay until Sunday.
