Interesting historically of course, otherwise just a nice wide expanse of sandy beach to relax on.

For any proud American. OMAHA Beach is a lifetime experience of Patriotic Adventure & American Military History. Free Tours by English speakers of the breath-taking American Cemetery featured in the Film, "Saving Private Ryan". Free entry to a $30+ MILLION spectacular modern World War II Visitors Center with phenomenal actual footage of American fighting troops - never seen before by the public. A MUST DO if you want to know what it means to call yourself an "American". ONE OF THE TOP 5 MOST VISITED TOURIST SITES IN EUROPE.

Omaha Beach is a landing area in Normandy, northern France, used by Allied forces in the WWII D-Day invasion. Today, the beach is dotted with the remains of German bunkers. On the shore, the stainless-steel sculpture Les Braves commemorates American soldiers. Behind the beach is the Musée Mémorial d'Omaha Beach, also documenting the invasion. Nearby, the Overlord Museum displays WWII tanks, artillery and dioramas.
Year: June 6, 1944

Today, Omaha Beach is a recreation beach where locals come to enjoy a nice sunny day. It is a very long stretch and plain beach. Behind these sand and the surfs is the historical landing of the Americans who came to assist the allied troops on that faithful day June 6, 1944 . Standing on this otherwise plain beach, the sacrifice made was immense and although I was not around during the time of WWII, the quietness around here speaks volumes to me of the heroic acts that took place here.

Omaha beach is one of the beaches used during the Allied landing on D-Day. The beaches' historical relevance goes without saying, and a visit is highly recommended.
