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 Zeppelin, San Francisco

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.

ATL Skypointe

Beyond being a major hub in the global transportation network, Hartsfield-Jackson is also proud to be a major hub for exciting, high-quality retail options through our award-winning concessions program, ATL Skypointe.

Coffee Table Books for the Adult-ish Traveler

There are few things as adult-ish as a well-designed living space. When you stop strewing your Ikea coffee table with old magazines and straw wrappers, and start creating a “lewk” that’s more your style, it’s time to invest in a coffee table book. Sometimes pricey, these are not the tomes you curl up with in your cozy chair. They’re often hefty, artistic and fun and, if chosen correctly, a true representation of your own sense of style and interests.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
