Cotton Tree is a good spot to check out while you are in Freetown. Another one is the Fourah Bay College.
Those sightseers who have some extra time in Sierra Leone, can take their explorations a little further visit other fascinating places within a short distance of Freetown.
Spend an afternoon with fellow soccer lovers at National Stadium, cheering on Sierra Leone national football team. National Stadium is 1 mile (2 kilometers) to the west of Freetown. To look like a local, don't forget to pack some green, blue and white, the colors of the Sierra Leone national football team.
One of the best ways to understand a spot is by discovering its past. Make the time to visit the ruins while you are here.
Sunbathing and wildlife watching are just some of the many options for relaxation in the Sierra Leone area.
Sometimes, the best vacation moments can be found in local eating establishments. Cassava bread and okra stew are two much-loved choices guaranteed to imbue visitors' palates with a true taste of Sierra Leone. And your meal is not over until you have had coconut cake (biscuit), a common dessert in these parts.
Even the best vacation can't last forever, so when it's time return home, head to the nearest major airport in Freetown, 9 miles (14 kilometers) away.
