Surfing, outdoor dining, runs at the beach, picnics in the park. Spring in Tel Aviv is all these and so much more. It’s right after the winter rains and right before the intense summer Tel Aviv heat. What makes it even more special in the city is that ‘Aviv’ from Tel Aviv literally means spring. So enjoying the spring season in the city of ‘spring’ cannot be topped.
As an intern with Career Israel and Masa internships, make sure to enjoy Tel Aviv during this refreshing season. The mornings are still crisp, perfect for a stroll, a run, sitting at a cafe with a light jacket, or an early breakfast on the balcony.
At noon it’s already warm enough to head to the beach – swimming, surfing, or just sunbathing on the sand (still, make sure to put on enough sunscreen).
In the afternoon a great nap with the windows open, no AC needed yet, an afternoon cafe with a light snack in the shade or sun, window shopping with friends, and grocery shopping for dinner at home.
And finally, during the evening got out with a sweater or t-shirt, layer up, for a fun date on the town, sidewalk restaurants, and bars that spill out into the street.
What else can you do:
- Take a tour of the city. There are many guided tours, also in English, to explore the city’s attractions – some more prominent than others. You can also find food tours, design tours, and those that focus on architecture. Look up your favorite city topic and join a tour to explore Tel Aviv.
- Have a meal with strangers. There are several new apps, like EatWith connecting chefs cooking at home with those interested in unique food experiences in Tel Aviv. Many are in an apartment balcony or at hidden private gardens. The combination of homemade food, interesting and diverse company and the perfect Tel Aviv spring weather make for a fantastic evening.
- Yoga at the Tel Aviv port. Every spring you can find outdoor yoga classes, usually free, on Friday mornings in Tel Aviv. It’s not too hot for the workout or too cold for the light attire while on the mat. The classes start early so the sun’s not too bright and later, for you to continue your day energized.
All of Israel’s seasons are wonderful, it’s never too cold or too hot, and Tel Aviv has it all during Israel summer programs, however, the spring season is spectacular. T-shirt, light jacket, shorts or jeans and your set. Make plans or be spontaneous and come out to enjoy the city.
