Tel Aviv is a young city compared to its counterparts in the remainder of Israel. The city was established in the early 1900s, and since that time it has managed to maintain its youthful, modern, and cosmopolitan charm. However, Tel Aviv does also have significant historical sites, such as the Independence Hall Museum and Old Jaffa's boardwalk. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy plenty of activities in the beautiful surroundings while culture lovers take advantage of the arts, entertainment, and fine dining that Tel Aviv offers.
Some of the sights you will definitely want to see include:
-Habima Square: This is a critical cultural area of Tel Aviv. Here you will find the Helena Rubinstein Pavilion, the Mann Auditorium, and the Habima Theatre.
-Bet Bialik Museum: Situated in the home of Israel's national poet, Chaim Nachman Bialik, this museum includes 94 books that he penned. Visitors will also find translations of these works in 28 languages.
