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. 

Previous guests praised the Tayelet as one of the best places in Tel Aviv to relax and enjoy the sunshine. The coffee shops and restaurants that dot the boardwalk also received rave reviews. Visitors also insisted on renting a bike to see as much of the coastline as possible. There are several Tel-O-Fun stations along the promenade.

You can access the Tayelet at any point between Jaffa and the Old Tel Aviv Port. Bus No. 4 runs parallel to the boardwalk. The promenade is open at all hours and is free to access.

Sitting about halfway between downtown Tel Aviv and Jaffa is Neve Tzedek, one of Tel Aviv's original settlements. Composed of beautifully restored houses, boutique shops, thriving cafes and trendy art galleries, this neighborhood is undeniably one of the city's most beautiful areas. Recent visitors described Neve Tzedek as Tel Aviv's SoHo and insist that future travelers check out the array of offerings available. This trendy neighborhood houses some of the city's premier art venues, including the Rokach House Museum and the Suzanne Dellal Centre, where the Batsheva Dance Company performs. While you're exploring, keep your eyes peeled for the murals adorning many of Neve Tzedek's walls.

You can easily reach this vibrant region by bike or taxi from anywhere in the city. It can also be reached via bus Nos. 41 and 240. You can wander Neve Tzedek's streets 24 hours a day without spending a shekel. To learn more, visit the Israeli Tourism Board's website.
