Morocco's White House
Casablanca, or the 'White House', is the primary economic and industrial hub of Morocco. While it lacks the moorish characteristics of Morocco's imperial cities, the city still has a variety of sites and characteristics that makes this place worthwhile to visit. The vibrant white buildings and orange coastal sunsets left its tonal impression on me and will forever remind me of my first stop in Morocco. I recommend Casablanca as the starting point on your first journey to Morocco. It's modern characteristics coupled with its traditional Moroccan roots is a great place to wet your feet before diving head first into the Imperial cities of Morocco.

Morocco has more oranges and lemons than any country I've ever experienced. These trees fill the cities and countrysides. Getting your daily dose of vitamin C is not an issue in Morocco.
