Osu is great. Good places to eat/drink. the best part is meeting the kids and hearing peoples stories on the street. We let off some fireworks aswell that was fun. Keep your phone and money hidden.

the area is a concentration of bars, pubs and restaurants, with lots of street traders, hustlers, etc thrown in for colour :-) It is always bustling with life, and can be fun to explore

This is a very touristy area, so why on earth doesn't the Accra Metropolitan Area spend a little money to clean up and mend the gutters and restore the sidewalks?

My taxi driver was telling me that Osu is one of the few places in Accra that provides a genuine view of Accra, and local life. The area does provide some insight into life in Accra. Worth checking out.

Make sure you go further afield than just Oxford St-the whole suburb has interesting little shops and businesses tucked away if you go exploring. Plenty of food stalls, restaurants, clothes and many, many people hawking such things as sunglasses, belts and watches on the streets.

You can get your shopping done in OSU but the street vendors will hound you incessantly. Be prepared to walk away to get a good deal.
