Most travelers take a trip to Bayeux to see the famed tapestry depicting the legendary Norman Conquest from the 11th century.
Attractions like Musee de la Tapisserie de Bayeux and Cathedrale Notre-Dame make great kid-friendly stops. Visit Normandy American Cemetery and Pointe du Hoc for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Bayeux: Chateau Guillaume-le-Conquerant (in Falaise) and La Roche d'Oetre (in Saint-Philbert-sur-Orne). And it doesn't end there: get outside with Omaha Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Juno Beach, take in the history at Memorial 1st US Infantry Division Omaha Beach, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Beny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery.
