For us Jeddahwis, the corniche holds a special place in our hearts. So much so that even our weekend feels incomplete without a visit to the corniche.

After all it is here where we have so many of our childhood memories and whenever we get any visitors from other places, the first place we take them to is the corniche.

1. Do a scavenger hunt for seashells and weird rocks.

2. Fly kites with your family. And teach the kids about wind in the process.
