I love Lagos.
People who live outside cannot understand the love Lagosians have for their city. Sure we have the negatives, traffic being the most obvious but there is so much to love about Lagos. Here are a few things you can get up to:
Go Out For A Bite
One of my favourite things to do is EAT. There is no shortage of restaurants in Lagos. My personal favourites are:
Crust & Cream, Victoria Island
Grills In & Out, Lekki
Orchid Bistro, Ikeja
The food is awesome and you won’t break the bank.
Visit Museums & Galleries
Enjoying Lagos doesn’t always involve spending money. You can take in the sights at certain galleries on your own, it would only cost you if you book a tour guide. Go with a loved one or a friend, it makes the experience more memorable. You should visit Nike Art Gallery, Lekki.
The Apapa Amusement Park was recently refurbished. Go on, get on the rides and embrace your inner child. Have a few laughs. Also, the Lagos Conservation Centre is an untouched natural park in the Lekki axis of Lagos. Enjoy the scenery and the wild life. Conquer your fear of heights, take the Canopy Walk.
Theatre at its finest
Cinemas are in different parts of the country now but i recommend theatre for a totally different experience. You can experience this on weekends at Terra Kulture, Tiamiyu Savage road, Victoria Island and also at Freedom Park, Onikan. The Muson Centre also hosts stage plays and musicals.
You haven’t been to Lagos if you haven’t gone to the beach. There are so many to choose, from private, more quiet beaches to livelier ones. You can go paintballing with a group of friends at Elegushi Beach, enjoy peace and quiet at Atican Beach or Inegbe Resort for a touch of luxury. Some beaches even come more alive at night.
Lagos doesn’t sleep at night. Fact.
The best skincare and relaxation spots are here. From Ajali naturals to Clear Essence California Spa. There is a place for every budget.
There is always something cooking at the Eko Convention Centre.
You have to take pictures at the famous landmarks. How else would you prove you were in town. Take pictures at The National Theatre, Iganmu , Eko Eyo Statues, The Cathedral Church Marina to name a few. Take a BRT ride, which other state can boast of one?
Shopping in Lagos
How can you come to Lagos and not shop? You should visit the popular Balogun Market and even Tejuoso Yaba Market.
Enjoy our malls; Ikeja City Mall, Circle Mall, The Palms Shopping Centre, Mega Plaza, Adeniran Ogunsanya Shopping Complex, Leisure Mall and Mega Plaza 21st Century Mall to name a few.
You would definitely want to come back.
