Activities

Jerusalem Area

Begin Museum- outside the Old City
Caliber 3- Shooting Range in Gush Etzion
Ramparts Walk- on top of the Old City walls
Kotel Tunnel Tours
Time Elevator in Jerusalem- Don't waste your time.
City of David (Ir David)-Amazing-you must take a tour to fully understand the site.
Segway tour-interesting way to waste a few hrs-NOT an absolute must do


Tel Aviv/Center

Blind or Deaf Museum in Cholon- Blind, amazing. Deaf, good. Prior reservation needed.
Hagana Museum in Tel Aviv--15NIS per adult; students free; a bit disjointed and kind of fake acting in the videos, but mostly very interesting and educational.
Bullet Factory in Rechovot
Mini Israel- Love it or hate it

North

Rosh Hanikra- Way up north

Golan Heights

Tel Dan nature reserve (similiar to Banias Waterfall -slightly easier & toddler friendly)
Banias Waterfall
Nimrod's Fortress in the Golan
Kayaking down the Jordan River
Mount Hermon Ski Lift
Mount Bental Overlook/Bunkers
Golan Heights Winery
Yehudiya Nature Reserve Hiking

South

Nachal Dragot (aka Darja)- an intense hike near the Dead Sea
Sunrise tour of Masada, Ein Gedi, and Dead Sea aprx $70

Israel Master Thread: Things To Do, Places To Eat
« on: March 15, 2010, 11:35:57 PM »
For some, this topic may be a given. For others, i think it could be really helpful.

I haven't been in Israel for quite a few years since my yeshiva days and am finally headed back for a vacation with the wife and a toddler.

We have pretty much everything set up except the "what to do, where to go" aspect.

If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, we'd love to hear them and im sure others on the forum would too.

From places to go, things to go, places to eat, places to avoid, lets hear em all...

Check out the Trip Notes tab section on Dansdeals.com for some insights, although I never did get around to finishing up my notes from my last trip.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I actually saw those already and found them quite useful. We already have the tickets, the car, and a place to stay. Im looking for tips on cities to visit, places to go see, restaurants worth a visit to etc...

Wanna see something nice, and have never been to the grand canyons, check out Mitzpeh Rimon in the South

These are some of my favorite dishes that I had in Israel:
-Philly Steak Sandwich at Cafe Rimon fleishig is ridiculously good (74NIS)
-"Homemade" burger at Burgers Bar. Don't miss the chimichuri, pesto, and chili sauces! (30NIS)
-Belgian waffles with caramel and white chocolate sauce and ice cream at Cafe Rimon milchig (25NIS)

In Tel Aviv "Alternative" was a milchig restaurant had some a prix fixe menu for dinner before 6pm that gave a Ben & Jerry's milkshake, soup, entree, and dessert for about 50NIS and was incredible.  I don't know if that is a permanent special of not. Their Creme Brulee was the best I ever had and is an absolute must!!!!

Caffe C in Tiverya is very good.
Felafel Tritto in Tzfat is cheap and delicious, stuffed with lots of felafel, fried eggplant, and french fries for 10NIS.

And as I only eat Cholov Yisroel and rarely get good Ice Cream in the US eating as much ice cream as possible in Israel in an obsession.
In Tiverya it was easier to find Cholov Yisroel Ben & Jerry's pints than it was elsewhere.
