Monrovia Travel Guide
Monrovia is the capital city of the West African country of Liberia. Located on the Atlantic Coast at Cape Mesurado. With 29% of the total population of Liberia, Monrovia is the country’s most populous city. Founded on April 25, 1822, Monrovia was the second permanent Black American settlement in Africa after Freetown, Sierra Leone. Monrovia’s economy is shaped primarily by its harbour and its role as the location of Liberia’s government offices.
The city center is the image of a tropical capital, melting in the hot sun. Monrovia is a low-rise capital on the sea, lined with palm trees and paint-chipped buildings of no more than three stories. The city, however, has a vibrant vibe on the street.
To be honest, there is not much to do, see, nor buy in the city center. There are a number of merchants lining the streets, selling used clothes, household wares, and an “interesting” selection of DVDs. There are two large, well-stocked supermarkets in the city center to offer a surprising selection of Western foods.
Still, despite its woes, Liberia has the feeling of a country on the ascent. Billboards line the streets, inviting citizens to pay their taxes to make their country stronger and to take pride in their success. It is not cliche to say that Liberians are extremely friendly, so the streets seem alive and peppy.
It is incorrect to say that Monrovia has no buildings higher than three stories. There are several buildings in Monrovia that are 8 stories or higher. Examples are the ministries of Finance, Education, Health, Foreign Affairs, the Executive Mansion, Pan African Plaza, Ducor Hotel, several apartments on Tubman Blvd. etc. There are also close to a dozen large supermarkets with a wide selection of food, beverages and just about anything found on supermarket shelves in the west.
