War in the Pacific National Park

Piti, Guam

War in the Pacific National Park is a little unusual: Most national parks emphasize the scenery, but this one is all about the sacrifices soldiers made to free the Pacific in World War II—a theater much bloodier, more dangerous and harder to explain than the one in Europe. Asan Invasion Beach is where many U.S. Marines first came ashore in 1944. The Pacific War Museum (you can’t miss it: It’s next to the navy base and has a submarine parked in front) holds all the very best WWII artifacts in Guam.
