5 Fun Tel Aviv Attractions for Teenagers

September 3rd 2018

What are some fun attractions for teenagers in Tel Aviv?

The teenage years are the bridge between childhood and adulthood. In this sense, it can be difficult to know what teens will find interesting when visiting a new city. They’re no longer interested in kids’ things, but they’ll still get bored doing what you might, as an adult, consider fascinating.

With this in mind, we’ve collected together 5 fun attractions in Tel Aviv we know teens of all ages enjoy.

If you’re visiting with teenagers, then consider checking out the following places:

Azrieli Observatory

Shopping, eating, and a fantastic panoramic view across Tel Aviv and beyond. These are three reasons why the Azrieli Observatory is a great place for teens to visit.

The observatory is situated on the 49th floor of the Azrieli building on Menachem Begin Street. The building forms part of a big commercial complex which includes a large and very popular shopping mall. Visitors to the observatory get to watch a 3D film about the history of Tel Aviv and also dine in the sky-high restaurant.

The Heart of Tel Aviv – Dizengoff, Shenken, and Rothschild

Think of Fifth Avenue in New York or the Champs-Élysées in Paris. The Tel Aviv equivalent are three well-known and hugely popular thoroughfares, which include Dizengoff Street, Shenken Street and Rothschild Boulevard.

The three streets – all based in downtown Tel Aviv – are unique in style and character. Dizengoff Street is renowned for its coffee shops, clothes stores, and swanky boutiques. Shenken Street is known for its cool urban hipster vibe and its many high-end shopping establishments. Rothschild Boulevard is a tree-lined street perfect for walking and people watching whilst nipping into shops and cafes. The perfect places for teens to explore.

Tel Aviv Port

The Tel Aviv Port, known locally as Namal Tel Aviv, is one of the trendiest locations in the city. As the name suggests, the area was a thriving port until operations were moved south to Ashdod as shipping containers grew larger.

Namal Tel Aviv is a great place for people of all ages, including teenagers. There’s a diverse range of culture, entertainment, and leisure activities. During the day you can visit hundreds of different shops, cafes, restaurants, and galleries that can be found along the promenade. After sunset, the area becomes one of the most popular and vibrant nightlife destinations.

Jaffa Flea Market

Teenagers love bargains (and if they’re good at haggling) then a visit to the Jaffa Flea Market will be in order. Based in the ancient port city of Jaffa in the southern part of Tel Aviv, the “Shuk HaPishpishim” features a plethora of alleyways and walkways with vendors selling just about any product you can image.

You can find Persian rugs, Arabic pottery, religious jewelry, Indian textiles, regional foods, delicious sweets, discounted clothing, electronics, second-hand furniture, collectables, antiques, and so much more. Close by there are restaurants and coffee shops in which to rest even the most youthful of weary legs.

Eretz Israel Museum

For more studious teens, the Eretz Israel Museum provides a fascinating insight into the land and history of both ancient and modern Israel. Located in the Ramat Aviv district of Tel Aviv, the large museum complex features interactive displays and exhibitions related to archeology, anthropology, history, Judaica, arts & crafts, plus a lot more.
