Airport Residential Area
The Airport Residential Area is one of Ghana's best neighbourhoods to live in. It gets its name because of its close proximity to the Airport. Many foreigners in the country prefer not to live too far from the Airport area. As such, many residential homes and gated communities in Airport Residential Area have tight security to protect their inhabitants.
It is also home to many world-acclaimed hotels such as the Marriot hotel, Holiday Inn hotel and African Regent hotel.
Tesano is a well-planned neighbourhood with good road networks. There are many businesses there such as filling stations, banks and restaurants. It also has a number of neatly built residential estates and apartments.
It is home to the Police Training School and the Tesano Police Station which makes it a very secure neighbourhood. The community has a number of schools such as the Ghana Communication Technology University and the Mizpah International school. It is also home to media houses such as Peace FM, Ok FM, Neat FM and UTV.
The Roman Ridge community is pretty upscale and houses foreign High Commissions such as the Nigerian and the Indian High commissions. It is home to several top hotels such as Best Western Premier Accra Airport Hotel and The Congress Hotel. It also has some of the country's top schools such as the Roman Ridge School where many foreigners send their wards.
The many hotels and schools where foreign students attend mean that Roman Ridge has been made foolproof from any danger or insecurity.
