Israel may be small, but it certainly delivers as a great vacation destination. It has coasts on the Mediterranean, the Red Sea and the Gulf of Eilat. The Dead Sea, Holy Lands and ancient cities attract tourists from all over the world.
Dead Sea: This is the lowest point in the world at 1,300 feet below sea level. It's also one of the most popular attractions for visitors in Israel. It's a perfect day trip from Jerusalem with a rental car so pack your swimsuit, let's go to the sea!
Tel Aviv: If it's your first time in Israel, Tel Aviv is a must. The Old Jaffa is a good place to start; this is where legend says Jonah boarded a ship that was eaten by a big fish. The nearby flea market is also excellent.
