#TravelNigeria: Best Places to Visit on Children’s Day
Today is Children’s Day. In the hustle and bustle of everyday life in Lagos, most adults like me forget to just live a little. That is why I love kids; their innocence is humbling and their sense of fun is beautiful. Today we celebrate them! We celebrate their innocence, forgiving spirit and joyful soul. How can we make today fun for them?
Children who are still in their formative years learn a lot from visiting a new environment, so please don’t keep them locked up all day today.
Are you in Lagos and not sure where to take your kids today? Here are some fun places to visit within the City of Excellence where you can relax with your kids on this special day:
Lekki Leisure is a lake side resort overlooking the Atlantic in the Lekki peninsula area. The resort is operated and managed by Optima Leisure, a leisure asset development and operating company. Catch a view of the Atlantic and feel the excitement on the Quad bikes as you zoom through the dune track.
