Tips / Destination

Discover the magic of Morocco once immersed in the heart of its culture while in Casablanca. Fully experience all this famous city has to offer at these destinations.

La Corniche

This beach district attracts many people with its luxury hotels, restaurants, beach clubs, surf and sun. If you’re looking to enjoy a day at the beach in Casablanca, do it here.

Morocco Mall

When you finish strolling La Corniche, you’ll arrive at one of Africa’s largest malls. Morocco Mall features an aquarium, a fountain, ice skating, modern shops, a variety of dining options, an indoor souk (market) and much more. You can even go scuba diving in the aquarium.

Rick’s Café

At a recreation of Rick’s Café from the film Casablanca, the ambiance and cuisine satisfy all of your senses. You absolutely must sample an authentic Moroccan dish.

The Old Medina

With merchants selling everything from meats and produce to essential oils and Moroccan-style clothes, local life flourishes in the Old Medina where Casablanca’s heart beats as it did 1,000 years ago. Just try not to get lost in the many alleys.

Place Mohammed V

Casablanca’s central plaza, Place Mohamed V, houses the Bank of Morocco, French Consulate, Palace of Justice, post office and Prefecture. The music and water show at the plaza’s fountain charms many.

Hassan II Mosque

The mosque’s structure extends over the sea as Hassan II stated, “I want to build this mosque on the water, because God’s throne is on the water. Therefore, the faithful who go there to pray, to praise the creator on firm soil, can contemplate God’s sky and ocean.” It’s truly breathtaking.

The awe-inspiring sights and thriving city life enable you to embrace Morocco’s heritage and gain new perspective.

Hotel Joule

I arrived in Dallas on a cloudy afternoon and, luckily, traffic was light as I drove my rental car into the city in just less than 30 minutes. The Hotel Joule was built in the 1920s in the Neo-Gothic style and is a city landmark in the heart of the business district.

The Iditarod

Nicknamed “The Last Great Race,” The Iditarod is a grueling, long-distance sled dog race from Anchorage, Alaska, to Nome. It’s an incredible race that both humans and dogs train for all year. It takes a lot of strength and teamwork to be able to complete the race, let alone win. The person who directs the dogs, or mushers, must be prepared for all situations. Mushers are on their own during the race and face challenges as they occur.
