Owner description: This historic beach was the primary point of landing on June 6, 1944, for the entry of American forces into World War II and saw some of the most intense fighting in the entire war.

If you want an exhilarating experience that is full of history, nostalgia, and pride, consider making a pilgrimage to Omaha Beach and other burial sites in Normandie, France, where American and allied troops are buried. Even though WWII was 70 years ago, it is important to keep history alive so it doesn't repeat itself! Seeing concrete German bunkers and enormous tanks drive home the reality of this war, and paying respects to veterans who paid the ultimate price for our freedom is an important part of what we are all about.

Omaha Beach in Normandy is one of the most moving historical sites I have ever visited. The site was amazing, you could easily roll back the 70 years and envision the troups marching across the beach and up the cliffs. If you only have time to see one cite in Normandy, visit the beach!!

If you can only do one thing in Normandy, I suggest coming to this beach. I had the greatest opportunity to bring my family to this life changing beach. All my wife and I could do is just think of everything that happened. looking around you can really picture the horror and sacarfice from our US military memebers.

When you plan your visit to Paris, make sure to allow time for a D-Day day trip. Every American can learn and benefit from this experience. We traveled from Paris by car enjoying the countryside and quaint seaside villages along the way, but arriving at the site of the D-Day Invasion at Omaha Beach changed one's mood to that of reverence and awe. To experience the location by climbing down into the bunkers occupied by the American enemy knowing the odds of casualty and defeat, then to peer down the steep ocean cliff--knowing our troops took their chances at climbing...an unbelievable demonstration of courage! Witnessing this location first hand is the only way to truly understand anything about this historic American event.
