CHILMARK, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama's seventh and final 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 friends at some of the Massachusetts island's top restaurants.

Congress is also on an extended summer break from Washington, something the White House has chided it for as the nation deals with the Zika virus in Florida.

The Obamas like to keep a low profile on the island and were successful last summer, but events forced the president to interrupt his vacation several times in 2014.
