Tel Aviv's Boardwalk Expansion

PhotoCredit: Jesse Fox for the Sustainable City Blog
Last year, the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality put a lot of work into lengthening and expanding one of the most fun and iconic stretches of Tel Aviv- the boardwalk.  The work they did extended the boardwalk southward past the newly renovated Yafo Port down to Bat Yam and northward past the Tel Aviv Port up to Hertzliya.

This extension not only creates a unifying force between the north and south of Tel Aviv-Yafo, but it also looks fantastic and is surprisingly practical.

The new extended stretches of boardwalk feature green, landscaped grass,  wood-laid bridges and walkways and beautiful views of the city.  Most importantly, they have constructed well marked bicycle lanes, and opened up spaces which were previously closed off to the public such as the Tel Aviv Marina by the Gordon Beach.

So, if you are looking for something to do during a free morning, evening or afternoon in Tel Aviv, take your bike out and ride from Bat Yam or Yaffo all the way up to Hertzliya.  Bring your bathing suit and take a dip in the water on one of Hertzliya's beautiful beaches.  Dry off in the sun, and then head back home for a cool relaxing shower.

There is still more work planned for the Tel Aviv boardwalk, but plans have yet to be solidified. And until the next wave of construction is underway, I really think the most recent modifications have been significant and more than welcome.

  1. My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am anxious about switching
    to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.
    net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  2. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
