I plan to visit the Utah Beach area for the d-day 70th anniversary in June.
I had planned to rent a car and drive around Normandy myself. Yes, I am naive and intrepid.
So far, the only place I have found for lodging is in Pirou.
Is it even practical to book there and drive across the point to Utah Beach?
Or should I just try to book at one of the chain hotels for the activities?
I want to do the IVY March that retraces the route the 90th division took from Utah Beach to Sainte Marie du Mont. Following that, I would plan to visit Periers, where the 90th division has a historian living.
Following that I would plan to visit the Metz area, but thought I could do that by train.
Any advice would be appreciated.
