I’m really excited to interview Mark Gordon of The Jerusalem Post Podcast – Travel Edition about Tel Aviv, Israel. Mark’s tips for the best things to do in Tel Aviv are awesome because he has been in Tel Aviv for more than 10 years and he loves the great food, lively bars, and beautiful Mediterranean beaches.
Tel Aviv, Israel
We share a lot of resources and local suggestions in today’s podcast, but you should also check out Tel Aviv’s Official Tourism Website, the local visitor’s bureau. They are a wealth of information and can help you plan an itinerary based on your time, budget, and interests.

Getting around Tel Aviv
The local airport is Ben Gurion Airport (TLV), which is about a 25-minute drive to Tel Aviv.
Mark says that public transportation is relatively inexpensive. Each local ride should cost less than $2 per person. There are also trains or buses if you want to visit other parts of Israel.
