Family Entertainment - There are family resorts along the Cherbourg peninsula and the whole coastline are warmed by the Gulf Stream. Deauville, Trouville, and Cabourg are well established and desirable seaside places.
Excursions - include the Cider Road and the Cheese Road. And if the pace is too fast by car, you can hire a horse drawn carriage. In every corner, you will discover hidden treasures : the pretty harbor of Honfleur, the Bayeux Tapestry, William the Conqueror's birthplace at Falaise, the basilica at Lisieux dedicated to Saint Theresa, Claude Monet's treasured garden at Giverny, and the world-famous Mont Saint Michel, with its breathtaking views from the ramparts.
Eating Out - Normandy is a rich gastronomic area with its fresh fish ("when Dover soles cross the Channel, they arrive in Dieppe") and shellfish, duck, cream and, of course, the famous Calvados and cheeses like Camenbert, Livarot, and Pont l'Evêque.
