President Barack Obama and his family will leave Washington, D.C. right after Inauguration Day on Jan. 20, according to a report.
Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama along with their two daughters will head to Palm Springs, California, for a vacation, TMZ reported.
They will board a helicopter on Friday after leaving the Capitol. Then, they’ll head to Andrews Air Force Base, where they’ll then get on a government jet heading for Palm Springs.
There have been unconfirmed reports that the Obamas purchased a home near Palm Springs, in Rancho Mirage, located in Southern California.
And while taxpayer dollars will pay for the Obamas’ plane trip to Palm Springs, they’ll have to pay for their trip back.
Meanwhile, on Monday, moving trucks were spotted outside the Obamas’ new rental home in the Kalorama district in Washington, D.C., CBS reported. WUSA reporter Bruce Leshan tweeted a picture that appears to show a moving vehicle outside the home, which also showed boxes in the street.

The eight-bedroom home is 8,200 square feet with nine and a half bathrooms.
Obama, in an interview with “60 Minutes” on Sunday, said that his family is happy to be leaving the White House. “I mean, the girls, obviously, you know, they are now of an age in which the constraints of Secret Service and bubbles and all that stuff has gotten pretty old,” Obama said. “Michelle never fully took to the scrutiny. I mean, she’s thrived as a first lady, but it’s not her preference.”
