Tel Aviv is a very young city and most Israelis have lived in Tel Aviv when they where between the ages of 20 to 30, at least for a period of time . I truly think that it’s the people who make the city and in the case of Tel Aviv, the young people are the ones who make it and that’s why it is considered the beating heart of Israel.
Apart from July and August which are quite hot and humid, the temperatures at the rest of the year are always pleasant and comfortable.

In general, you can visit Tel Aviv during the whole year and always have fun & make the most of it.
Culturally, Tel Aviv has it all. Museums, live music, street art & graffiti, history, concerts, you name it… If you want to experience culture, you will, a lot of it.
Tel Aviv is quite a small city which is nice because even in a weekend long vacation you can feel that you’ve experienced it without having the FOMO feeling all the time.
Because of its size, it’s really easy getting from place to place. You can use public transportation, bicycle, electric scooter or even walk, which is mostly enough if you’re not staying to far away.
