HAVANA, Cuba (AP) — President Barack Obama is in Cuba for a historic visit. It's a big step in efforts to forge new ties between the United States and its one-time foe.
The president is traveling with first lady Michelle Obama and their daughters, Malia and Sasha, as well as a group of American lawmakers and business leaders.
Obama will greet staff at the new US Embassy and then join his family for a tour of Old Havana.
On Monday, Obama will hold talks with Cuban President Raul Castro and also hold an event with US and Cuban entrepreneurs.
Obama is the first US president to visit Cuba in nearly 90 years.
