When they vacate the White House, the Obama family will be moving into a nine-bedroom home nearby while Sasha finishes school — but that's not the only new abode where the First Family will make new memories.
In what would appear to confirm the stuff of long-time speculation, Page Six now reports the Obamas have bought a home in Rancho Mirage, California. That's near Palm Springs — which is already an ever-growing hotspot, thanks in part to the fever pitch of the Coachella festival, not to mention tons of buzzy new hotels and dining options. And it's close to the former Annenberg estate known as Sunnylands, considered an unofficial Camp David of the west.
Gerald Ford also retired to Rancho Mirage — so it's hardly an unprecedented move for a former president. Especially not for one who loves golf, as Obama does: It's a top destination for the sport.
Page Six also cites reports that the Obamas have purchased a home in the president's home state of Hawaii. So if you're keeping count, and if all reports are true, that's a solid roster of properties not far from three different coasts — including two vacation homes for a guy who's probably good and ready for a vacation after eight years holding the hardest job in the world.
