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

Crave isn't mehadrin?

What are some of the good non-fancy mehadrin places in Jerusalem?

Mehuderet, whatever that means.

I had an AMAZING experience with Nir Friedman form https://www.hiddenvalley.co.il/
Very pleasant and knowledgeable.
Not sure which areas he covers.
(He's not religious so some of the history/science etc. he mentions may not agree with you, I just tuned it out.)
He made a great effort to please everyone.

Went to skyline last night, food was pretty solid, took forever and a half... Also went over privately to waitress and asked her to bring cake with candle for anniversary she needed to be reminded twice and then started singing Happy birthday instead. All in all I'd go back for the food

Sounds like my experience exactly. At least they didn't charge you for the family of eight's dinner from the next table over

Anybody have a recommendation for a driver for 4 from Jerusalem to up north for the day. Not looking for any special deal just a good well recommended driver.

Hey, so I'm staying in the Ritz Carlton now and I'm paying with points. Just found out that you don't get the free breakfast if you pay with points though...any chance to get around it? Or if someone is willing to sell their vouchers? If not that's fine, but are there any good restaurants near me? (I'm staying in the Ritz in hertzeliyah)

Tried Grill Bar tonight. Unimpressed.

When I first read this I was gonna jump on you.
Then I visited again this week and noticed that at least some items changed.
For example, the baby chicken I ordered was nothing similar to the past 20x I've been there. It was still good tender chicken but the incredible blend of spices was gone and replaced with some mediocre but okay flavor. Hope they change it back to normal.
Live forever or die trying.

There have been ppl that have successfully pulled off a free breakfast there by asking for it. I wasn't successful. Cafe cafe is a very good option... (check the hechsher).

I ordered the premium plate. Nothing on it was good. The filet and sweetbreads were too salty, the pargit and kebab were meh and i had to send the steak back since they served me shoe leather when I asked for medium.

At best this place is a subpar shipudiyah/steakiyah.

Jump on me? lol
