Port
“While the Jaffa port has been around since the start, Tel Aviv has developed a newer northern attraction at the opposite end of the sandstrip. During the day, Namal Tel Aviv (the Tel Aviv Port) is surrounded by action: Tel-o-fun bikers on their way to Park HaYarkon, shoppers enjoying the outlet overload, families waiting in line for weekend brunch, and friendly fisherman catching their own. At night, the area’s hangars transform into Tel Aviv’s most happening nightlife scene, hosting crazy parties, community events, and all-night Jazz jams. Come see for yourself at the city’s trendiest hotspot. ”

“Goocha is a seafood restaurant with a reputation for fresh food at a reasonable price. The restaurant’s upbeat atmosphere is perfectly matched to its location on the busy Dizengoff Street. Goocha is popular among Tel Aviv locals, so you may have to indulge in some window shopping while you wait for a table! Along with various fish and shrimp entrees, the menu includes burgers and pasta, so everyone can find the meal they enjoy. For dessert, try the Belgium waffle with caramelized bananas, a treat you won’t regret! ”

“Bird/Lime/Wind - E-scooter apps to get around :) Walking around in Tel-Aviv, you'll see dozens of electric scooters just scattered all over the city. It is by far the easiest way to get around in a city like Tel-Aviv. All you have to do is download one of the e-scooter apps listed above, enter your CC info, scan the barcode on the scooter and you are ready to go! If you want one and you don't see them on the street, each app has a map that can show you where the nearest scooter is. Super comfortable!”

“Kikar HaMedina Around the plaza, which was designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer (in cooperation with Israeli architects who planned for the existing residential buildings), there is a circular street, He Be'Iyar Street (Israeli Independence Day Street), connecting with two major streets: the north–south Weizmann Street, and the east–west Jabotinsky Street, as well as a number of small streets. The square itself is currently the site of a large, poorly maintained park, however various plans to demolish it and build large shopping centres and luxury towers have faltered due to local opposition. In the 1960s, circuses moved into the sandy square coming to perform. In the early 1970s extensive construction activity began around He BeIyar Street, which established a uniform design and luxury buildings. Many of these buildings have luxury stores and international designer shops located on the first floor, which have made it one of the most expensive areas in Tel Aviv. On 3 September, 2011, Kikar Hamedina was the gathering place for the 'March of the Million', the culminating demonstration of the 2011 Israeli social justice protests. The demonstration was the largest in Israel's history, with approximately 300,000 people marching on the square, and 100,000 demonstrating in other locations across Israel.”
