D-Day in Normandy with kids

Jump to last reply

We have the opportunity to visit D-Day beaches over June 6, 2014 with our 7 and 9 yo boys. We will fly into Paris and travel to the area, probably by car, or train and rent car in Caen.

Few questions:

1) is it super crowded on D-Day? Wondering if we should make a point to be there that day, or arrive that afternoon, visit a beach, and do most of touring on 7th.

2) good town to find hotel? We would like to visit St. Mont Michel before heading back to Paris

Thank you.
