Vice President Joe Biden is in the Lowcountry taking some time away from Washington D.C..
The vice president had roads blocked off around the Charleston International Airport Wednesday as Biden’s motorcade made its way through the Lowcountry to get to a vacation spot.
Biden will stay on the outskirts of Charleston, at Kiawah Island, for about a week. Residents spent over an hour waiting in traffic while the vice president made his way to the island. Biden says he is looking to spend some downtime in the Lowcountry for his stay.
President Barack Obama plans to take a vacation at the end of this month.
