We can all agree that the month of January is doing its own Mannequin Challenge. It’s so annoying! Like can the month of love be here already? We all suffer from stress in one way or the other and are looking to find calm in the hustle and bustle of the city. Well, it’s the weekend already and with it comes football matches, relaxation, chills and of course weddings. You may have come from another city to support/attend a friend’s wedding – we understand. Find some inner peace and tranquillity at these Cool Places to hang out in the Garden City. From lounges and parks to restaurants, these places are sure to help you chill out.
My first choice would definitely be food related! You are definitely not a Port Harcourt citizen if you haven’t tried the infamous Bole. If you are visiting for the first time, I can assure you that you won’t remain the same. There are numerous spots you can get this amazing delicacy from, ranging from roadside mummies to ‘tush’ spots inside GRA complete with POS machines. However, if you want your bole in classy and more befitting conditions, Bole King is one of the Cool places to Hang out in the Garden City. It is located at 10 Omoku Street, D-Line, PH.
