Any suggestions where to send 3 adult females on a trip in Israel for a day or two? I'm thinking somewhere up north but I am open to ideas. Also, I think if anyone can recommend a tour for one of the days that would be great. TIA

There's a company inside Ikea that you hand off the products to and they ship it

I'm trying to avoid going there. In fact, I probably won't go there.

I found their site and seems like they stopped the service recently.

I am trying to rent an apt for a weekend in the Arzei Habirah (new section) maalot dafna, ramat eshkol area. I don't want to use an agent (unless I have to). I tried Airbnb and vrbo and I couldn't find apartments in that area. Maybe I am searching wrong or there is a better site to use for these areas? Anyone have any pointers or leads?

Planning a 2 day drive up north ... thinking Akko,  Rosh Hanikra, the Banias, Golan Heights Winery and maybe Tiveria on the way back down.

Any recommendations for some other stops to include or instead of something mentioned above?  Hikes or just some nice places to see etc?
