SAIPAN IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE IN AMERICA YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF (PHOTOS)

There’s a story, possibly apocryphal, about a federal drug agent who was stationed on a tropical island near Guam — and every time she called headquarters back in D.C., the conversation would begin like this.

“I’m calling from Saipan. Yes, we have an office there. Because it’s part of America.”

Indeed, Saipan is part of America — it’s the most populated of the Northern Mariana Islands, an insular chain with a complicated history that became administered by the U.S. after World War II, and has been a U.S. commonwealth since 1978.
