Nigeria really has got beautiful places to travel to if only you know the right places to look. It’s got really great natural features and tourist centers you never even knew existed. What am I even saying? I never knew these places existed until I decided to do a research. I found these really amazing places, places I would love to check out personally in my life time, which, is definitely on my bucket list and I would put up pictures and write about my journey and experiences in my Itchy Feet Diary as I explore these places so as to carry you all along.

Majority of the places listed below, I have not been to. And the places I have been, I really don’t remember what it was like but I can assure you that I did a lot of research to pick out these places among others and I can promise you that checking out these places would be totally worth it.

So I decided to put up a list of places in Nigeria you really should check out.

  1. Unless you want to convince me that Badagry is outside Lagos, I see no reason for Badagry Slave Museum and Black History Museum in your write-up.😂😁

    That said, you have done justice to the topic. I have been to a handful of those places you mentioned and I can confirmed that they are great tourist attractions.
