But for South Florida residents, there's a whole separate concern: Any weekend where Trump is hanging out at Mar-a-Lago is a weekend when you'll need to stay as far as possible from West Palm Beach, unless getting caught in a massive protester-versus-Secret Service gridlock is how you get your kicks.
The president has yet to attend a church service in the Capitol since his inauguration weekend back in January.
The president's youngest daughter Tiffany, Barron and Melania's parents joined the couple for the Easter services at the Bethesda-by-the-Sea church.
Joining the president at Mar-a-Lago mansion were his sons Eric and Donald Jr., and their families.
Trump and the First Lady will participate in the traditional White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, which Melania will host in a century-old tradition to be attended by thousands of children.
ALLEN: At a rally in Washington, D.C., Democratic members of Congress said they'd keep the pressure on the president to release his taxes. He also went to the golf club on Friday.
Missing from the Easter family gathering were Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, the president's two top aides in the White House, who were spending Passover at the Four Seasons Whistler resort in Canada.
Before services, Trump spent Easter morning on his Twitter feed, where he was again focused on his come-from-behind Election Day win.
"Why would I call China a currency manipulator when they are working with us on the North Korean problem?"
In one tweet he wrote: "I did what was an nearly an impossible thing to do for a Republican-easily won the Electoral College!"
