Protected from the Atlantic by sand spits and barrier islands, Lagos quickly grew into a mega city due to its location, and currently operates one of the continent's largest and busiest ports.
Get some historical perspective at Freedom Park Lagos and The Cathedral Church of Christ. Head to Nike Art Gallery and Red Door Art Galleryfor plenty of shopping. Venture out of the city with trips to Badagry Slave Museum and Black History Museum (in Badagry), The Henna Place (in Lekki) and Olumo Rock (in Abeokuta). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Elegushi Beach, don't miss a visit to The Eyo of Eko Statue, take in the spiritual surroundings of Central Mosque of Lagos, and examine the collection at Kalakuta Republic Museum.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Lagos attractions planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Murtala Muhammed International Airport. In August in Lagos, expect temperatures between 83°F during the day and 74°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
