Currently listening to the sounds coming from my rechargeable fan as electricity is now a scarce commodity.
Hi guys, how are you doing? How is this weather treating you? I’m about to melt. This sun is not from this life..
Anyway today’s post is a little different from the usual stuff I do,its mainly because I’m about to die of boredom, this holiday is now becoming a punishment and I know so many cool places but since I’m not allowed to explore I decided to just pour out my favorite spots in Abk here also if anyone has a reason to come over there’s something to do and somewhere to go. I’ve lived here all my life and I can say I know enough.
One of my favorite places for ever! Is 1.Sweet Sensation..
I know FFO,but No. There’s just something about abk that its so small, someone will always know someone that knows you. Sweet sensation is like the meeting point of everyone, I can say Everytime I go there I always bump into some I know. It’s crazy. Don’t get me started on the food at S.S, it’s always so delicious.
2.Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library.
Before you start to say ‘a library?’, Yes it’s a library sorta.. That’s what it’s called but inside there are restaurants, there’s a lake, an amusement park, a cinema, a tie and dye/adire factory, a church, a wild life park, a resort and then the library. Seems like a lot to do right?
3.Park Inn by Radisson
So if you’re visiting and you need a place to stay, this hotel ehn.. Geez! Maybe because they just opened but the place is so fine. It’s really cozy and quiet almost feels like home.
4. June 12 Cultural Center.
Here they have lots of events going on, They have rallies, beauty pagents, seminars, workshops, they organize shows and Concerts occasionally for artists who remember that there’s a place called Abeokuta 😒 and They Also show movies. I remember vividly the first time I watched sound of music was in there. I also remember last independence day Gbenga Adeyinka had a show, lots of celebrities were around too. It’s one of the coolest places in Abeokuta.
The alake of egbaland’s palace is also a tourist site. I’ve been there quite a number of times, you get to go around and check out all the ancient stuff. It’s really interesting too and you get to hear the tale of how egba came to be. And no you don’t get to see the king 😂😂
I’m sure you might have been wondering where I was going to bring this up, everyone, even people that don’t live here know Olumo rock.
It’s the most visited place in Abeokuta and I don’t blame them,its really a sight to see. Just don’t try to climb the rock alone(I learnt the hard way). There’s a mini art museum in it and a restaurant also a shrine. You can literally see almost the whole of Abeokuta from the top of the rock..Also you get to hear the tale of the rock and how people lived in the rock. I remember some old women still living in the rock, most of them older than 100years.. I don’t know if they are still there though,i feel like they will sha.
1.Iwe iroyin.. The food in this place can make you forget the way to your house and they have suya too
2. Big treat-they recently re-opened, they have a restaurant too, Chinese food, pizza and what not
3.Sky Pavilion – it’s a club right on top of Chicken Republic just incase.
P.S Shop rite under construction (they’re done clearing the land)
Have a great day guys.
Until next time.. XOXO
I can bet you guys didn’t know that we had such places in Abeokuta, you probably thought it just had old yoruba speaking people. 😂
