Basic Visit Recommendations

Set aside one or two hours to visit the park. Begin at the Visitor Center by watching the film and spending some time in the exhibit which illustrates the events of the Battle of Saipan in 1944 during World War II. Conclude your visit with a stroll around the park to visit the Memorial Court of Honor and Flag Circle, the Marianas Memorial, the Carillon Bell Tower, World War II artifacts, and Smiling Cove Marina. For an extended visit to the park, you may wish to include additional time to enjoy the many local flora and fauna, birding, playing tennis or other sports, spending time on the beach or perhaps an afternoon picnic.
