The Clock Tower was built in 1961 to commemorate independence. It can be skipped. It is a crumbing cement tower in a roundabout circle. 

The Uhuru Monument is dedicated to Tanzania’s independence. It can also be skipped. 

Slipway is on the Msasani Peninsula. It has a restaurant, a café, and shopping. “The Peninsula,” is the “nice” area where many of the tourists to Dar stay. 

Sea Cliff, which is also on the peninsula, is a good place to relax. Sea Cliff is at the top of the peninsula and includes a small shopping mall and an expensive upscale hotel.

There is a fishing village on Msasani Peninsula. It is on the site of one of the oldest Arabic settlements along with Swahili Coast. It took about an hour of being lost to find it. It is off the beaten path but definitely worth the find. I highly recommend going.  

Tingatinga art market is a must-see!  Tingatinga is a style of art that started in Tanzania. This is a place to buy a souvenir. 

The Tanzanite Museum is worth the trip to learn about Tanzanite. Tanzanite is a gem only found in Tanzania. Tanzanite is considered 1,000 times more rare than a diamond. 

The Germans built Azania Front Lutheran Church in Bavarian style.

The downtown fish market is a definite must-see place. Watch the fishermen come back from fishing with their catch and then sell it at the auction tables. It is a very busy place that is bustling in the mornings.

Women waiting at the fish market to take the fish and sell them around town.

The State House is where the president lives. It is a beautiful building. I would recommend visiting.
