4 Lennon Tributes Around The World Everyone Should See

Today would have been John Lennon’s 77th birthday. A number of tributes, memorials and monuments have been erected the world over in honor of the late Beatles. Here’s a look at four of our favorites that we think everyone should see.

Liverpool, England

It should be no surprise that there are a number of Lennon tributes scattered throughout Liverpool. Among them are a statue outside the original location of the famous Cavern Club, the Hard Days Night Hotel (which opened in 2008) and Liverpool John Lennon Airport (which was renamed as such in 2002.)  Fun fact:  The airport's slogan is "Above us only sky."  (We see what they did there.)
