BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence is making a weekend getaway to Vermont and visiting a museum dedicated to former President Calvin Coolidge.

His office said Friday that Pence planned to spend the Labor Day weekend in the state with his family. Shortly after arriving, Pence made an unannounced visit to Plymouth Notch, Vermont, to visit Coolidge’s museum.

Pence is an admirer of Coolidge, a former vice president and Massachusetts governor, and keeps a portrait of Coolidge in his office.

The vice president has no public events scheduled during the weekend.

Air Force Two landed at the Burlington International Airport Friday afternoon, hours after the vice president and his wife Karen honored the late Sen. John McCain in the Capitol Rotunda.

Pence was one of the speakers at the service Friday.
