Our WWII Inspired Normandy Road  Trip  With Kids

Our family loves planning educational travel with our boys. We wanted to show them as many WWII sights as possible.

It is important to us that our kids learn about WWII and visiting the Normandy Coast was the perfect way to do it.

We had read all sorts of stories about the enormous evacuation known by the code name Operation Dynamo so it was very interesting to see it all in person.

While the city itself had rebuilt after the war, you could still sit on the infamous beach and imagine what had happened there 75 years prior.

The museum tells the incredible story of the Battle of Dunkirk and Operation DYNAMO in May-June 1940, the largest evacuation effort in military history.

The bunkers are in the deep sand, which made it fun and a bit laborious getting from bunker to bunker.

One of the reasons we chose to start our Normandy road trip in Dunkirk was because of the close proximity to Bruges in Belgium.
