Planning a family vacation to Israel’s Mediterranean coast? Wondering what to do with kids in Tel Aviv? Looking for attractions to keep everybody happy? Good news. Tel Aviv is full of child-friendly attractions and activities that will appeal to the whole family.
Here’s a look at what to do with kids in Tel Aviv:
Tel Aviv beaches
No Tel Aviv vacation is complete without a trip to the beach. Adults and kids alike are sure to love the soft, white sands and warm Mediterranean waters. The young ones will get hours of enjoyment out of a bucket and spade, while the older kids can enjoy snorkeling, surfing lessons, and a wide range of other water sports.
It might not have all the bells and whistles of Disneyland, but Luna Park remains a safe bet for any family vacation in Tel Aviv. Thrill rides are the name of the game at this classic Israeli theme park, one that can be found in the heart of Tel Aviv.
Ramat Gan Safari
Located in Ramat Gan, a short car or bus ride away, this safari park is one of the most popular tourist attractions for families visiting Tel Aviv. Expect to see elephants, rhinos, gorillas, hippos, and even a komodo dragon as you tour the park.
In addition to offering a peaceful and scenic setting that parents are sure to love, Yarkon Park – Tel Aviv’s largest park – also features a host of activities for children to enjoy. Basketball, soccer, and mini golf are all on offer, while children’s playgrounds and Meymadion waterpark prove very popular. Renting bicycles offers a great way to get around the park, and there are plenty of cycle and jogging paths.
While museums may not be the first choice for younger children, older kids are sure to be captivated by Beit Hatfutsot – the Museum of the Jewish People. Situated in the lovely grounds of Tel Aviv University, Beit Hatfusot uses interactive displays, dioramas, and short videos to engage and educate visitors of all ages, bringing to life the remarkable story of the Jewish people.
