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 (PM satturn if you want a private tour )
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

Anyone here want to host me and a friend of mine from yeshivat shaalvim for a shabbos sometime this year? The food there is terrible...actually quite inedible to be honest and any home cooked meals would be much appreciated. I know there is a website called anywhereinisrael.com which finds a host for you but it would be kinda cool to spend shabbos with a fellow DDfr. Thanks in advance! All help/meals are much appreciated.

I apologize in advance if this was already discussed.

Have not been to Israel in over a decade.

Can I drive to Meoras Hamachpela and Kever Rochel, or do I need to go with a tour bus or another way?

I'm based in yerushalyim and renting a car.

What's the safest and best way to visit those two locations?

You should not drive at all, if you have to ask that question. You're a danger to yourself and your family.
