Tel Aviv



Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

It’s a city. Everyone can find their niche. Non-Jewish singles might have the most to complain about, especially those trying to date. - Aug 19, 2017
I would say for all though as noted above it requires a bit of initiative and a willingness to step outside one's comfort zone. - Oct 24, 2016
Seems like everyone is fine here! - Jul 25, 2016
It's a great country for all to enjoy, especially families because Israelis love children. There are lots of going out options and the beaches are wonderful. The downside is that urban-loving families are generally not easily accommodated in the Embassy housing pool. - Apr 12, 2016
For singles the city centre is the place to be. If you can find a good house in the city and your family can handle the city life, go for it. But housing prices are high. - Mar 23, 2016
All. Despite the prickly outer armor of most Israelis if you can't make a friend, then that's more on you. - Nov 18, 2014
This city is good for all families. - Apr 10, 2013
Good city for singles. Embassy personnel stay to themselves don't socialize much, you're on your own. But restaurants are good. If you live downtown, life is good. Families are isolated in the suburbs. Embassy has a REC center, but they never make much use of it, Americans are not a social bunch. - Aug 14, 2010
From that standpoint, it's not bad for anyone. Families have their place, and singles do, as well, although b/c of the living conditions, this is a family posting. - Jul 26, 2010
This is a great city for everyone - Feb 27, 2009
Great for everyone - no limit to bars, restaurants, theaters, great beach hangouts, etc. Truly a 24-hour city. - Sep 19, 2008
Yes for all. - Jul 2, 2008
