The Go Tel Aviv Insider Travel Guide

What Do You Love Doing in Tel Aviv?

That’s what I asked my friend Nathalie when we started writing about Tel Aviv.

"It's hard to decide" she answered, "because there is so much that I love to do here!” She thought for a moment, smiled and said, Well, I love relaxing on one of my favorite Tel Aviv Beaches -

The city has more than 16 gorgeous beaches and has been rated the 9th best beach city worldwide by National Geographic.

Or how about walking around one of the city's Open Air Markets - the Spice Market, Flea Market, Crafts Market or Shuk HaCarmel Market - that flood your senses with ethnic aromas, colors and personality.

I often stop to buy a refreshing, freshly squeezed pomegranate juice. Delicious!

I love window shopping in picturesque Neve Tzedek neighborhood, or strolling down leafy Rothschild Boulevard where I'll stop by at one of my favorite art galleries if I have enough time.

Going out here almost always includes meeting with friends and stopping at a restaurant, cafe or bar for a coffee or a drink.

And there is nothing like Tel Aviv nightlife!

I love ending a fun day by dancing the night away at one of my favorite night spots.

I smiled and nodded in agreement.

I love life in Tel Aviv and its casual Mediterranean ambiance. Life here inevitably revolves around the sea. Twice a week, I walk barefoot on the sandy beaches with a friend or go bike-riding on the seaside Promenade.

My husband and I often start our day with have a delicious typical Israeli breakfast at the Hatzuk beach restaurant just 10 minutes from my house before heading before heading off to work.

We are both big-city girls, Nathalie from Paris and me, Ayelet, from New York, and independently, we both fell in love with this city and decided to make it our home.

We met working at a hi-tech company, as do 10% of the working population in Israel.

Nathalie is single, I am married to an Israeli and have 2 children, but that didn’t stop us from becoming fast friends. We left the company looking for a life change, and that’s how the idea for this website was born.

Instead of promoting hi-tech products, we decided to use our skills writing about something we both love.
