Tel Aviv



What are the particular advantages of living in this city?

Weather, food, beach, laid-back vibe. - Aug 19, 2017
It's great because you can ditch the car and enjoy the sunshine, parks, beach, etc. - Oct 24, 2016
Safe city and fun! Whatever activity you are looking for there is a good chance you will find it here. I have heard people going from the opera to cross fit to art class! - Jul 25, 2016
The weather is beautiful almost year round with only about two months of August-September hot summer. The beaches are beautiful and clean. Tel Aviv has a great food and nightlife scene. It's also one of the most liberal cities I've ever visited. A recent NYTimes 36 Hours quote sums it up best: "Young, modern Tel Aviv and ancient Jaffa pulse with energy and combine to offer bustling markets, night clubs and a beachside promenade just right for two wheels." Tel Aviv is nicknamed "the bubble" because it often feels far removed from the pervasive conflict in Israel. - Apr 12, 2016
The weather is great for at least 10 months. It's a unique opportunity to experience the place that gets so much attention, and see for yourself what the fuss is all about. - Mar 23, 2016
The history - both ancient and recent. - Nov 18, 2014
The amazing history, beaches, shouks. The weather is wonderful. However, this is not a money-saving post --- unless you skip all of the perks, do not travel, and eat raman noodles every day. - Apr 10, 2013
Beach for the beachgoers, hiking in the desert, driving to Jordan, driving to Egypt, touring the Golan Heights, touring the dead sea and Galilee areas. Expensive to survive, you won't save money. - Aug 14, 2010
The beach, when it's clean and not crowded, is lovely. - Jul 26, 2010
