Evidence of the U.S. military defense that started during World War II still exists with Andersen Air Force Base on one end of the island. Learn about Guam’s key role in World War II history at the Pacific War Museum and also at the War in the Pacific National Historical Park.

The island has 4,000 years of history and more than 130 sites on the National Register of Historic Places. Learn about the story behind Two Lovers Point, and watch cultural demonstrations at Chamorro Village. Go on a 4-kilometer walking tour around the capital of Hågatña and stop by 17 historic sites. See the ancient latte stones – pillars topped with cup-shaped capstones – that were used to support homes.

Relax on some of the island’s top beaches, including Ypao Beach Park, Ritidian Point, Tumon Beach and Gun Beach. Offshore, a rare opportunity awaits divers, who can explore two warships from two different wars lying next to each other on the ocean floor. The SMS Cormoran II, a German cruiser, sank during World War I, and the Japanese freighter Tokai Maru sank during World War II.

Stay in the Tumon Bay district, which features an array of resorts, restaurants, attractions and entertainment. On Guam, your money goes a little further: No sales tax is charged.
