Calvados Experience Pont-L'Eveque
#2 of 369 things to do in Calvados
Brilliantly constructed guide to calvados - bit like a mini Harry Potter studio tour according to 12 year old but with the bonus of apple juice for kids and calvados tasting for adults at the end.
This would be a great experience for couples, families, kids (minus the tasting!) and seniors.

Zoo de Jurques Jurques
#28 of 369 things to do in Calvados
Now there are a lot of controversial thoughts around zoo's but a good zoo makes you feel like you are a kid again and really makes you appreciate the amazing wonder of certain animals.
There are also lots of quizzes and puzzles dotted about for children to do and areas of discovery.

Juno Beach Saint-Aubin-Sur-Mer
#36 of 369 things to do in Calvados
We took our gran children to The Juno Beach Centre to reflex on the sacrifices their Canadian forefathers made on the 6th of June 1944, D Day.
Its a big beach and one that in the right conditions would make for a great family setting or water sport location but you cannot get away from its place in history.

#14 of 369 things to do in Calvados
The guides do a phenomenal job of bringing home the impact of war on both the soldiers who fought and the families at home.

The battle maps, gun displays, et al are here but the videos and writing of the soldiers, their families, and loved ones were the most moving and impactful portions of the displays.

The varieties of butterfly flying about are amazing and in the tropical setting with plants and birds our kids found it interesting including the koi carp in the water.
It's great for kids too as they will marvel at the size and colours of some of these butterflies, especially when they land on you.
