Every Tuesday and Friday, the Nahalat Binyamin Pedestrian Mall in downtown Tel Aviv is taken over by more than 200 outdoor stalls, displaying everything from glassware to jewelry to local crafts. The historic market is the largest arts and crafts market in Israel. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., this popular shopping district overflows with browsers and buyers looking for the perfect souvenir. 

Recent visitors described the Nahalat Binyamin Market as the perfect place to pick up a souvenir or just people watch. The only caveat is the market does get extremely crowded, so some tourists recommend that those who don’t do well in crowds skip this particular attraction. 

The Nahalat Binyamin Market sits just south of the Carmel Market and can easily be accessed by bike or on foot from Neve Tzedek. It can also be reached via bus Nos. 104, 172 and 204. Although the street market only takes place twice a week, Nahalat Binyamin welcomes shoppers every day with a variety of permanent boutiques and galleries. You don't have to spend any money, but you'll definitely want to have some extra shekels on hand, just in case.

#1 The Tayelet

It's easy to see why walking and biking are the preferred modes of transportation here: With a 3-mile-long beachside boardwalk to cruise, taking a taxi or a bus just feels like a missed opportunity. Tel Aviv's Tayelet – a pedestrian-only street – runs along the Mediterranean from the Old Tel Aviv Port to Jaffa, offering bikers and strollers spectacular views of the sea. On the inland side, the Tayelet grants easy access to Tel Aviv's prime hotel areas, as well as numerous restaurants and nightlife venues. On the other side of the promenade, you'll find beautiful beaches, including hot spots like Gordon Beach.
