If you live in Lagos, then you know how stressful the city can be especially if you live on the mainland and work on the island. Naturally, you would want to spend your weekend taking a well-deserved rest. The dangers associated with this is that you will one day wake up and realise that you know nowhere in this mighty little city.
But if you an adventurer and love to explore without doing the regulars like going to the mall, then you have tons of options as to where you can actually spend your weekend, have fun and not spend a lot of money. You can decide to go alone or go with your friends.
If you usually drive, I will advise that you ditch your car for once and enjoy Lagos in a danfo bus. How else will you brag that you have lived in Lagos without having experienced the conductor hang from the door of the bus? Or having heard the conductor scream “Owo mi da”?
The list is in no way exhaustive but these 6 activities in Lagos will do for starters…
1. Visit Nike Art Gallery
The gallery in Lekki is home to thousands of various artworks. From paintings to drawings to stones and beads, the place has got it all covered. The best part is that it costs nothing to go in and you can take pictures while inside!
2. Head To Lekki Conservation Centre
For a chance to climb the longest canopy walk in Africa, LCC is just the place you need to be. However, be protective of your food or you will be forced to share them with the monkeys.
3. Don’t Forget Lekki Art Market
This market prides itself on being the largest art market in Nigeria. Do you believe that? A trip down there will answer your questions.
4. Go Camping At The Beach
Most of the beaches take just a token as their entrance fees. But the best way to enjoy the beach is to go camping with a bunch of other people. This way, you make new friends, have a new experience and have fun in the process.
5. Visit Jaekel House
The Jaekel House located in Ebute Metta is a legacy building and a mini-museum. You will get to see one of the oldest railways and trains in there.
6. Tafewa Balewa Square
Popularly called TBS, the square located at Onikan was the site of Nigeria’s independence celebration which took place on October 1st, 1960 where the then Prime Minister, Tafawa Balewa, delivered his speech.
