WEEKEND OUTING IDEAS:
So besides eating in different restaurants and hiking, what else can one do on weekends in Abuja? Here’s a list
1. Karaoke at Sequence_lounge
Sequence is a lounge and restaurant located on No 4 Salt Lake Street Maitama. This lounge actually serves really good food. It’s not inexpensive though. They also offer karaoke on Saturday and Tuesday. The Lounge closes at Midnight. Please feel free to drop others places to do karaoke 😉
You can kayak at the National Stadium. Per hour, It costs N3,000 per person to kayak on weekends and N2,000 on weekdays. Life jackets are provided as well. Kayak.abuja is open from 8am-6pm daily. The Google maps address is accurate.
3. Go swimming

4. Picnic at Abuja Park and Zoo
Yes the Park and Zoo is very much still open. Entry costs N400 for adults and N200 for children. It’s a really good spot to chill. It’s huge and has a stunning water front view of Aso Rock. This place is also family friendly, there’s a playground area for kids. The Park is located Along the Kubwa Expressway. It’s inside an Army Barrack, Mambilla Barracks I believe. The Google Maps address is accurate. The park opens from 8am to 6pm Daily.
5. Explore A crushed rock
Abuja is home to a lot of crushed rocks, some with water and others without. One Crushed Rock that I definitely recommend is Ushafa Crushed Rock Located in Bwari Area Council. The water is blue and environment serene and secure. When I visited it wasn’t on Google maps but Abujacitytourist visited recently and mentioned that the Google maps address is accurate. If you do get lost, hail a bike to Adefemi Street, take a turn by a Redeemed Church sign post. You can also ask for Quarry river or for an abandoned quarry site.
