Travel Tips from people who've been to Lower Normandy
Hey pimps, Ok, so I stayed in the city of Caen, while visiting France while I was in the Army.  What can I say.  The women are hot as hell.  Even if I can't understand what they are saying.  If you travel there you don't have to be afraid.  There is always someone that speaks English, and people will generally help you out. The cooliest thing I like about Caen, is the have convience store/ vending machines.  Now let me explain that.  You go up to the store, and it has a long clear window, with a bunch of products.  It has a number and price.  You put your money in the machine on the outside of the building and like a vending machine you get your product.  How cool is that? Well, a bunch of drunk, horny, Army guys in a foreign country that are trying to get laid, and they can't speak the native language; what do you think they do?  Well, I will tell you.  We buy booze from that store, and a box on condoms.  And start walking down the street (at nite), and start shaking the condoms at every hot chick we see.  LMAO.

This is a town you have to visit when you're in Normandy, it has its own unique atmosphere. It used to be very popular with artist, especially the impressionists and you can still find numerous little galleries and arthouses. The old harbour and Sainte Catherine are two musts. For the people who like museum, you can buy the Pass Musées which cost you 9,30 euro if I remember correctly and will get you into four museums; Musée de la Marine, Musée d'Ethnographie, Maisons Satie and Musée Eugène Boudin. If you would pay for the entrance fees of the last two you'd pay more than for the Pass. These two are the only ones that I thought were worth the time.

Whatever you do don't go during the weekend like me if you can avoid it. It is a popular daytrip for many French and the streets in the historical centre around noon on a sunday are packed. Especially if the weather is nice.

This tiny little village is just adorable. It is perched on a small hill giving you a great view over the land lying between the village itself and Trouville/Deauville, you can even see a bit of the channel if the weather is good. It is a rather popular trip taken by the people staying at the coast, so it can get quiet touristy. There are a few galleries there, Antione Vit being the most popular one, who cater especially for the new rich still trying to be a bit bohemian. 

The church has been partially destroyed during some war, forgot which one, and now they are still rebuilding it. It looks normal on the outside but the inside is rather odd. Even though it is rather dirty it is worth a look.
