Casablanca

Capital of the Maghreb

As the center of Morocco's modern industrial economy, this seaside metropolitan area of slightly under 4 million inhabitants is sometimes considered less exotic than destinations like Marrakesh and Tangier. Much like those places, Casablanca possesses a scenic old town, dozens of mosques and historic sites, and a seemingly endless array of markets and souks. As the largest port city in northern Africa, it is distinguished by a laid-back international vibe that has survived the end of European colonization. The Hassan II Mosque, which was built on a coastal promontory to commemorate the 60th birthday of Morocco's former king, is notable both for its glass floor-through which visitors can look down at the Atlantic Ocean-and its 689-foot-high minaret. Once the sun begins to set, a activity popular among locals and tourists alike is walking along La Corniche, Casablanca's main pedestrian thoroughfare, which is packed with restaurants and cafes.
