Juno Beach, France does not look anything like it did back on D-Day, June 6, 1944 when the Canadian Troops stormed it. Today, there is a memorial to the soldiers who died there. This makes it worthwhile visiting. It’s a very somber place…
Juno Beach, France is located on the northwestern coast of France due slightly northwest of Paris on Juno Beach. The area is called Courseulles-sur-Mer.
