Tel Aviv

I spent a week in Tel Aviv almost a decade ago, so these tips are probably out of date. But some are still valid. I loved it there!

Café Noir

I was told by several people to go here for the best schnitzel in Tel Aviv. It didn't disappoint. Was great. Would totally go back here on the next trip.

Church of the Holy Sepulchre

I'm not incredibly religious, but the spirituality of this place is overwhelming. For those unfamiliar, this is the location Jesus was crucified and laid to rest. It's an incredible site.

Dead Sea

Yes it's touristy, but if you're in this part of the world, you have to do this. I spent a day in the area and really enjoyed it.

GO GET BREAKFAST HERE. Make a reservation. It's a chill little cafe with plate after plate of delicious food. Had we found this earlier, we probably would have gone here almost every morning.

Rothschild Boulevard

This is a lively street full of bars, restaurants, and people spilling out onto the sidewalks. We spent a few nights just wandering around checking out different places. Highly recommended to check this area out.

Rustico Rothschild

Wouldn't go out of your way, but if you're in the mood for pizza, this is a good spot.

Shalvata

The Tel Aviv Port is cool, and worth spending an evening. I don't remember this exact spot, but the whole port area is great.

Drinking

Tapeo

Very fun, lively, and crowded tapas bar. I went with a few people so we got about 15 plates. 12 of them were delicious. Was really impressed and had a great great time.

Drinking

The Container

I had read a lot about this place, and I'm glad I went. Chill atmosphere with good food. Wasn't incredible, but certainly worth checking out if you're in Jaffa.

Yad Vashem

Yad Vashem is the Holocaust Memorial / Museum and was one of the best museums I've ever been to. The building was designed to tell a story, and makes the experience even more powerful. Do not miss this.
