|This was our view of Tangier port from our room at the
Hotel Continental. The ferry terminal is just to the left.
|The Hotel Continental is an older hotel but we loved its convenient location, pleasant
terrace and dining area, and included breakfast, all for just $45 for a standard room
|Next morning we walked to the ferry terminal (the oddly shaped white
building) in the rain, so we were glad it was only five minutes away
|Tangier is a port city of nearly 1 million people. We used it primarily
as a ferry transit point, but there is a historic medina you can visit.
|Did you know Morocco was the first country to recognize America's independence back in 1777?
Thus the American Legation in Tangier was the first American public property located outside the U.S. It's also
the first and only property located in a foreign country to be listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
Unfortunately we arrived too late to visit the one attraction in Tangier we'd really hoped to see. [Note: Not my photos]
|This is the breakfast area
at the hotel -- pretty swank!
|The terrace overlooking the
harbor isn't too shabby either
|The FRS ferry is modern and comfortable.
Here's what it looks like on the inside.
