Tel Aviv

iStock International
Tel Aviv — Israel’s Mediterranean metropolis glitters with gorgeous beaches, blocks of Bauhaus architecture, and good-looking Tel Avivans who possess a fierce appreciation for art, cuisine, and nightlife.  Tel Aviv is a city of breezy, if unlikely, convergences: Witness the Orthodox Jews sharing the pavement with off-duty IDF soldiers and openly gay couples on their way to beach. As elsewhere in Israel, expect a certain toughness bred by circumstance—but the city will still pull you in with its frenetic pace and earthy-chic style.

Why Go

For Mediterranean dining and shopping, ancient Jaffa, and the White City, the world’s top collection of Bauhaus buildings.
