Tel Aviv Vacations
The Israeli city of Tel Aviv has a long history, which is particularly evident in the Old Jaffa district, where narrow streets and alleyways lead to ancient churches and shopping areas. Museums in the city include the Museum of the Jewish Diaspora and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. In the hot weather, the beaches are always popular. Continental Airlines, El Al and US Airways fly to Tel Aviv from the United States. www.tel-aviv.gov.il/english
Tel Aviv is a vibrant modern city that is best
known for its sun-drenched beaches, pumping nightclubs, designer
shopping, crowded street markets and high culture. What it lacks in
antiquities, Tel Aviv makes up for in commerce. One third of
Israel's population have made the bustling metropolis home. At
weekends residents from nearby towns head to Tel Aviv looking for
entertainment and relaxation and city slickers spill out onto the
city's beaches to soak up the Mediterranean sun along a six-mile
(10km) stretch of golden sand. The diversity of the population is
reflected in the architectural variations and influences such as
the Yemenite Quarter and the Vodka cafes of Allenby Street.
