Today, it's difficult to imagine Utah Beach the way it must have been on June 6, 1944 during the D-Day Invasion of France. The beach is clean, quiet and beautiful. There are several monuments honoring the men who fought their way onto the beach, as well as a good museum. You will need at least four hours to explore everything thoroughly, possibly longer if it is crowded. We visited in early October so it was fairly empty. We visited St. Mere-Eglise in the morning, then stopped at the Iron Mike Statue outside of town and on to Utah Beach. It was a full day and each place was well worth visiting, remembering, and paying our respects.
