Top 10 Fun Places to Visit in Ilorin

by - Tuesday, January 30, 2018

If I still know 1, 2, 3 well, I think I spent 7 years of my life in Ilorin, Kwara state. Unlike everybody, I found that there are also fun places to visit in Ilorin. I know, without a doubt that these fun and amazing spots may not be as many as those of what we have in Lagos but, still, there are.

So, this post! It is more like a tribute to the town in which I spent all of my tertiary eductaion life. Thank God for Univeristy of Ilorin and some of the other tertiary institutions in Kwara state. I would like to think that the migration of students and workers from Lagos and all parts of Nigeria has made more fun. 

So, I made a compilation of fun places you can visit when next you land in Ilorin. 

1. Palms Shopping Mall

5. Sister Biggs, University of Ilorin


This is like the big girls spot in Unilorin. If you plan to visit Unilorin, you can have your lunch there. I can't vouch for their meals, I don't like many of them. They are usually tasteless. I feel, it's just a good environment to relax, that's all. 

6. Rhema Chapel, Ilorin


For Christians who love youthful, lively, fun churches with good community of believers and support, Rhema Chapel, Ilorin is the bomb. COZA too.

7. Succoth Garden


You can have picnics, events and family get-togethers at Succoth Garden, Ilorin. It is very cool and serene. Succoth Garden, Ilorin, is also the best place to get a YES. 

8. Oke Odo, Tanke


Talk about Item 7, suya spots at night, Bekandims hotel, shawarma, lively and loud students, you will find the Lagos razz ones too. Oke Odo, Tanke is the heart of Ilorin. The next place after Oke Odo is Tipper Garage.

9. T & K Restaurant

This restaurant is popular amongst lovers and couples. If you are looking to catch some food fun with your boo or bae, land at T & K.

10. Ilorin Golf Club



This is a great spot for elites who want to unwind. It is an 18-hole public golf course, a spot where you can both network and have fun.
