Reviewed 12 June 2014

Our family had several days in Normandy, so we were able to visit the D-Day sites in a relaxed fashion.
Outing 1: Omaha beach walk, Bayeux WWII history
2: Juno Beach Centre, American Cemetery at Colleville, Overlord Museum
3:Pegasus Bridge Memorial
4: Juno Beach walk, Arromanche and the 'Mulberry' artificial harbor
5. Pointe du Hoc and the Ranger Memorial and Dog Green One re-enactment camp

Nothing was poorly done, everything was inspiring and we thanked every veteran possible. One of them said to us, "Teach your children about this. Don't let it be forgotten." We will. And we won't forget.

My husband and I visited the Normandy Beaches in May, 2014. Our guide, Dale Booth (www.dboothnormandytours.com), made the landings on June 6 come alive for us. We stayed in Bayeux (a charming town untouched by the war). Dale picked us up from our hotel at 8:30. We visited numerous historical sites and the beaches. He literally drew schematics in the sand to explain how effective the German defenses were and what our men were facing. He was very knowledgeable (he co-authored a book of the invasion) and a pleasure to be with. Our day ended at the American cemetery--a very powerful ending to a very memorable day. I highly recommend all Americans visit the invasion beaches to honor those brave heroes who changed the course of history.

As a natural setting, the Normandy beaches are worth visiting even if you're not interest in history. The water and sand are as pristine as they can get in Europe, and the beaches go on for miles. We came here with a friend who actually lived through the invasion as a child, so his first-hand account of that day gave us an impression of the place that could not be matched, unless we happened to know a soldier who actually landed on that beach. You're better off getting your own car to see this place, so you can go at your own pace, although I don't recommend staying near the beaches, as the accommodations are way overpriced and touristy. Better to stay in Caen and come here for a full day.

We visited all 5 D Day beaches. They all look beautiful and peaceful - horse drawn suki training when we were there, but so were many of the artifacts of war, left on the beaches as a permanent reminder of the horrors of the day.

as my kids were doing second world war history at school i took them to visit the Normandy Beaches, before we set off we watched Saving Private Ryan, seeing the beaches they began to appreciate what a massive task D-Day was, the museums were fantastic, so involving unlike museums in the UK, its quite a lot of driving but the roads are brilliant and the effort is very rewarding, listening to some of the elderly gents who were actually there gave you goose bumps as they were speaking about landing on those beaches under heavy gun fire, you just cant appreciate it unless you visit,
