While it may seem like a regular fishing port at first glance, Cape Coast bears traces of the Portuguese, British, Danish, Swedish, and the Dutch colonists who variously ruled here. Sightseeing in Cape Coast reveals the resulting cultural diversity and colonial structures like forts, trading posts, lodges, and a World Heritage-listed castle. The town came into the spotlight thanks to U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, who considers Cape Coast her ancestral home, having traced her roots back to a six-year-old slave sold to work at a South Carolina plantation. Places to visit in Cape Coast also include a slave trade departure point and universities, plus the local mascot--a giant crab statue. Cape Coast is in Central Region.
