Tel Aviv
Tel Aviv is the second most populous city in Israel. Tel Aviv is located on Israel's Mediterranean coastline.

Settlement in the area of modern southern Tel Aviv (the neighbourhoods of Neve Tzedek and Neve Shalom) began in the 1880s as a substitute for the relatively expensive Arab neighbourhoods of Jaffa by some of the town's distinguished Jewish residents. Tel Aviv's growth was halted in 1914 when the Ottoman authorities expelled its inhabitants. However, its residents returned and resumed development following the British conquest. The period of British administration saw increasing political friction between Jews and Arabs throughout Palestine, and in May 1921, dozens of Jews were killed by an Arab mob in the Jaffa riots.

Tel Aviv has a Mediterranean climate with hot summers, pleasant springs and autumns, and cool, rainy winters. Humidity tends to be high all year round, and rain usually occurs between October and May. The autumn and spring periods are short, and with climate change appear to be shrinking. Many see the best time of year in Tel Aviv as April when the sun is bright, temperatures are moderate, humidity is down, and the flowers are in bloom.

Israel has the highest number of museums per capita of any country, three of the largest of which are located in Tel Aviv. Among the most notable is the Eretz Israel Museum which is known for its rich collection of archaeology and history exhibits dealing with the Land of Israel.

Tel Aviv is undoubtedly the social hub of Israel, and its range of entertainment from highbrow to hip cannot be matched anywhere else. Israelis of all ages and tastes take their weekend fun and socialising very seriously. Young people especially like to party with all their energy. Allenby Street is the central spot for bars and clubs, with more than 20 clubs within one small area, offering house, funk, disco and techno. There are a number of gay venues. The scene here looks like Amsterdam, with a very international crowd keeping very late hours.
