Location, location, location…
And ours really can’t be beat. Located at the northern tip of Tel Aviv, the area around THE SPOT has it all—beaches (each with a different vibe!) and parks, restaurants and bars, culture, family-friendly spots and so much more. Check out some of the things you’ll find just a few minutes away from THE SPOT:
TEL AVIV PORT
The recently restored Tel Aviv Port (Namal Tel Aviv), with its wooden decks and plenty of outdoor seating, has become one of the hottest spots in Tel Aviv—and we’re lucky to be able to call it our ‘hood! The port is full of restaurants, cafés, bars, nightclubs, concert and event spaces, playgrounds and great shopping. Whether you’re looking for fun for the whole family or bumping nightlife, you’re sure to find it at the port. Also, be on the lookout for:
- Free yoga every Friday morning at 8:00 on the wooden deck
- Outdoor Israeli Kabbalat Shabbat (Shabbat ceremony) every Friday evening in the summer months
- Water shows
- A variety of festivals and performances
Tel Aviv’s Central Park offers a huge stretch of greenery with a river running through it. It’s where you’ll find Tel Avivians running, biking, walking with their dogs and/or babies, celebrating birthdays and barbecuing on weekends. Settle down for a picnic, or stroll the extensive paths until you find one of the “hidden” gardens, the bird sanctuary or the petting zoo for kids.
What’s your beach type? Head down to the sand and stroll up and down—you’ll quickly notice that each segment of sand has its own style and energy. There’s Mezizim if you’re looking for fun for the whole family, the Dog Beach for pooch lovers, the religious beach for separated bathing (men and women), Hilton Beach for the LGBT crowd and more. Find your spot!
Shuk HaNamal (the Port Market) is a covered market showcasing Israeli produce and prepared foods. You’ll find great pastries, fresh juices, old Jewish classics and sweets and spices that make for great souvenirs or gifts for loved ones back home. On Fridays, the area just outside the market turns into a farmers market featuring the incomparable local produce. Don’t miss it!
Looking for a one-of-a-kind Israeli souvenir or wardrobe item to take home? Dizengoff Street, named after Tel Aviv’s first mayor, traverses the city from north (starting near THE SPOT!) to south and is dotted with shops featuring clothing, accessories, jewelry and art by Israeli designers and artists of a variety of types and price ranges.
