He was titled the 'Vacation President' because he took over 900 days off in his 8 years in the white house. Also took a five-week long vacation in August, 2005, which no other president has ever done.

Known as the first American President to have spent so much money on unofficial travel in American history. He would fly down for vacations, to his ranch in Texas using the Air Force It amounted to 77 such trips, costing (then) $56,000 to $68,000 per hour.
This was my granddaughter's report...5th grader 10 yrs old. Just gave it in March 2013.
