Moving to Israel: Sightseeing
is an exciting opportunity to explore the exotic culture! Israel’s booming economy has contributed to the rise of one of the greatest cities in the Middle East, Tel Aviv. The cultural and commercial headquarters of Israel, Tel Aviv is a 24 hour city that will feel alive no matter what time of day or night it is. Pair that with year-round sunshine and 10 miles of seafront and you have a quite a spectacular combination. Here are a few landmarks and neighborhoods you don’t want to miss: Landmarks Among the eight beaches in Tel Aviv, the best one is the Tayelet. It features a 3 mile long beachside boardwalk, a pedestrian only street that runs from the Old Tel Aviv Port to Jaffa. Along the beach you will find some of the best hotels, restaurants, and nightlife available in Tel Aviv. Feeling hungry? Head over to Ali Karavan for the best hummus in Tel Aviv, served as either masabach – warm with chickpea chunks in sesame paste, or foul – with stewed fava beans. One of the most hopping places in the city is the Old Tel Aviv Port, which from the 30s to the 60s was the main gateway to the rest of the world for Tel Aviv. It was closed in the 60s and renovated to serve as a banging entertainment district full of bars and restaurants right on the water. Neighborhoods For you art aficionados, be sure to check out the Neve Tzedek section of Tel Aviv, between downtown and Jaffa. An original settlement of Tel Aviv, this part of town has been labeled the SoHo of Tel Aviv, known for its thriving art galleries, cafes, tastefully restored homes, and city murals. Jaffa traces its roots back to the Bible. It is said to have been named for Noah’s son Japhet, who constructed the city after the Flood. It has hosted both the ancient Roman and Ottoman civilizations, and the founders of Tel Aviv originated here. The White City is one of, if not the most beautiful neighborhood in Tel Aviv. It is a collection of over 4,000 Bauhaus style buildings built in the 1930s and 40s by Jewish German architects fleeing the Nazis. It is the largest number of these buildings in one area and is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Moving to Israel? Contact I Love Moving for all your international moving needs.
