It is laden with historical sites. It is a town with colonial prominence and slave stories. It was the first national capital of the then Gold Coast. It has notable places like the Cape Coast castle, the first senior high school in the country.

Food stuffs are comparatively expensive here than in other cities. More so, there are so many tourist sites in this city. The city is known for it castles and traditions which people come to learn.
