The Bidens are arriving today in the Hamptons to start their third vacation in a month.

"Vice President Joe Biden is arriving to spend a week in the Southampton area before leaving next Tuesday," News12 reports. "Biden lands in Westhampton this morning. It's not known if he'll meet up with two other big Democrats staying in the Hamptons this week. Hillary and Bill Clinton are already in Amagansett."

The official guidance from the White House is a little less direct: "The Vice President and Dr. Jill Biden will visit Long Island, New York. There are no public events scheduled," the vice president's schedule reads.

The Hamptons are in Long Island.

Last week the Bidens were in Wyoming for another vacation. "It's summer vacation time for the vice president," USA Today reported on August 7.

"Joe Biden and wife Jill began some time off Thursday in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, his office said, and will be there through Monday."

The week before that one, the Bidens vacationed in Rehoboth Beach.

"Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, are back in Rehoboth Beach for a quick two-day stay, according to his White House schedule," reported Delawareonline.com.

"No public events are scheduled while the Bidens are in Rehoboth on Tuesday and Wednesday, and there's no word on where they're staying. But there's a good chance the vice president, who spends most weekends at home in Greenville, will be out with other beachgoers."

Meanwhile the Obamas are on vacation in Martha's Vineyard.
