Spotlight Tel Aviv – a short Tel Aviv guide
What makes Tel Aviv so exciting? It’s been consistently rated as one of the top places to visit in the world. So here’s a short Tel Aviv guide with a few reasons why:
Tel Aviv Beach Guide
In Tel Aviv, you can easily get to the beach in minutes from anywhere. Take your pick, go to Gordon beach for a French-chic vibe, go to the dog beach if you want to see lots of puppies running around in the sand and sun, go to the gay beach, or the religious beach separated for men and women on alternating days or go to Metzizim for a chilled vibe. Whatever your style is, this fabulous city has a beach for you.
Tel Aviv Food Guide
This is probably my favorite thing about Tel Aviv. The food is delicious and fresh. You can go to any café and get a deliciously prepared coffee and a yummy homey dish. No matter the price bracket, the food is just simply authentic and scrumptious. My favorites are too many to list here. But check out my list of the top 10 favorite restaurants/cafes/holes in the wall in Tel Aviv (this is the inside scoop from a cool gal who lives in this awesome city, works in high-tech and hangs out with a pretty cosmopolitan crew – you won’t be disappointed). Whatever you decide, just make sure to make a reservation. Restaurants in Tel Aviv are packed every night of the week.
Tel Aviv Nightlife Guide
Having lived most of my 20’s in Tel Aviv, I have definitely been to my fair share of bars/clubs/parties. All I can say is there is nothing like nightlife here. I’ve lived in New York, I’ve lived in Buenos Aires, and Tel Aviv really stands the test. The bars are full every night, so just choose your scene. Hipster, cool, chill, trendy, chic, late-night, bottles and tables, grungy or relaxed – the bars and clubs have it all. Best of all, the amazing weather means most of these are at least partly outdoors and if you get there early, you won’t have a problem getting in. Around Rothschild Boulevard there are tons of options so that’s the best place to start.
There’s something about seeing and feeling people walking around and sitting in cafes morning afternoon and night, the mix of ugly and absolutely beautiful buildings, the good looking people and the sun shining that feeds Tel Aviv with an incredible energy. It truly is the city that never sleeps and its magical spark will keep you coming back for more.
