America’s Best Kept Secret

By Linda Tancs

It isn’t necessarily the secluded white sand beaches, marine life or water sports rendering the Northern Mariana Islands America’s best kept secret.  Sure, you’ll find those assets in lots of places.  What you won’t find elsewhere in America are captivating Micronesian sunsets and the busiest airport in the world during World War II.  Together with indigenous culture, nightlife and shopping, the islands of Saipan, Tinian and Rota offer visitors irresistible hospitality in a sparsely populated paradise.  Sample a local delicacy while you’re there like apigi (young coconut wrapped in banana leaves and roasted).
