Alma Beach: Near Jaffa, where the cool kids hang out to smoke and drink
Cool neighbourhood, very Eurpoean in style with lots of nice cafes and shops

OUTSIDE OF TEL AVIV
If you’re planning to do some trips around the wedding here are some of the must do things to see:
Jerusalem: A not to miss experience. Check out the Wailing wall, Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Mount of Olives, Dome of the Rock, Via Dolorosa and Israel Museum. As well as walking round each of the religious quaters. Avoid going on a Saturday, as it’s all shut beacuse of Shabbat. Not even the ATMs work, as you're not allowed to deal with money on shabbat. It’s about 40 mins from Tel Aviv
The Dead sea: The lowest point on earth. A place to go for relaxing spas and hiking. Cover yourself in stinky mud for health benefits! A very cool experience. Roughly 2 hours from Tel Aviv
Masada: Near the dead sea. A sunrise climb to the top is majestic and well worth the early start.
Petra: You can cross into Jordon from Jersualem. But you’ll need to organise a visa from the embassy in Tel Aviv before you go. If you can spare the time, this is really one of the coolest wonders in the world. FACT.
If you can’t be bothered with the hassle of organising your own trip, here is a tour company that will pick you up from Tel Aviv hotels:
