It’s almost summertime and that means there’s more reason to kick it at the beach, have a nice barbecue, and of course, check out all the tours and events you haven’t had the chance to see yet!
May is Tourism Month! If you’re visiting the island or a local who wants to explore more, be sure to tune in to KUAM on every Friday this month for Tourism Works features.
Here are some fun events you should check out this month!
