President Joe Biden and his family arrived in Nantucket Tuesday night, starting their Thanksgiving tradition of traveling to the island almost every year since the 1970s.

Joe Biden arrives in Nantucket for Thanksgiving Tuesday night
The family – including Biden’s son, Hunter Biden and his wife Melissa Cohen, daughter Ashley Biden and several of their grandchildren – arrived at Nantucket Memorial Airport on Air Force One around 1 p.m.
Biden has spent every Thanksgiving in Nantucket, except last year due to coronavirus, and his annual visit does not tend to disturb the residents, who are used to his annual Thanksgiving celebration on the island.
Despite being on his 46th visit to Nantucket, Biden does not own a house and resides in other homes, such as Democratic supporter David Rubensteins or Louis Susman, ambassador to Britain under former President Barack Obama.
The family is expected to stay until Sunday.
