they were the two beaches alloted to US forces during the D Day Normandy invasion
Well Normandy was the collective name of all the beaches that were invaded. By far the worst was Omaha Beach which was attacked by the Americans
The beaches of Normandy were divided into 5 invasion points. Utah and Omaha by the U.S. Gold and Sword by the British. Juno by the Canadians.
'Bloody Omaha' was one of two US invasion beaches in the D Day invasion of Normandy: June 6th 1944. (The other was Utah on the Cotentin peninsula) There were significant casualties because of the defenders enfilading the beach as the forces landed. Nonetheless it was a success, but the costs on Omaha were higher than the other beaches. (Gold, Juno & Sword)
Omaha Beach, Normandy, France.
Not only in Omaha beach, but in all the coast of the Normandy beaches in Northern France. There were five beaches: Omaha, Utah, Gold, Juno, and Sword. The Allies, which were the US Army, the British army, and the Canadian army, invaded these five beaches to take over the Nazi forces in France, and fortunately succeeded in the invasion. Although the toughest invasion for the Allies was in Omaha beach, because there were more deaths of the Allies than in the other beaches.
Omaha and Utah were the American beaches.
D-Day beaches include Normandy, Utah and Omaha beaches.
The invasion of Normandy was like a small slice of Hell. The defended beaches, particularly Omaha, had massive cross-fire from Germans dug into concrete bunkers. These bunkers were extensively bombed by Allied bombers over the previous weeks, not a single bunker was even cracked.
The Normandy Battle took place on five beaches. The beaches were invaded by parachute and gliders that landed on the beaches. The five beaches were codenamed Juno, Gold, Omaha, Utah, and Sword.

I am told it is about a three hour drive. you are told wrong. Normandy is a big place. You can get to the borders in an hour from Paris, and go on for another two or three and still be in Normandy. Of course, the questioner might mean the D-Day Invasion beaches, which many Americans refer to as Normandy - which is like calling Chicago Illinois. The nearest of the invasion beaches is about two and a half hours from Paris; allow another half-hour to Omaha Beach, 20 minutes more to Utah beach.
The code name for the Battle of Normandy in June of 1944 was Operation Overlord. The codes given to the different beaches were Utah, Omaha, Juno, Gold, and Sword. The Americans landed at the Utah and Omaha Beaches, while the British were assigned to the Sword and Gold Beaches. Canadian forces landed at Juno Beach.
