Traveler's Digest has made it official, ranking Tel Aviv No. 10 on its 2012 list of Cities with the Best-Looking Men, and No. 7 on it's list of Cities with the Best-Looking Women.
"Tel Aviv has become a hot spot for trendsetters worldwide. Local cuties flaunt their fit bodies -- made all the better by their year-round tans -- at any of the numerous beaches and cafés found on the 10-mile seaside strip," journalist Jessica Benavides Canepa wrote.
