Things to do on a rainy day in Tel Aviv

Following several weeks with no rain, this week is promised to have lots of rain, and this is why I'm writing this post: it's intended to give you some ideas for a rainy day in Tel Aviv.
The suggestions in this post are based on my experience, along with some input from my facebook friends, and are suitable if you're alone or with children.
So here goes..

If you want to stay indoors, there are a number of museums you can visit. You can spend a couple of hours in Tel Aviv Museum, or the Nahum Guttman Museum for example. I wouldn't go to Eretz Israel museum since there's a lot of walking out doors.

The Beach
If the rain is not that heavy and the storm is not too strong, go to the beach and stroll along the promenade. Since there's not much waves in Tel Aviv during the summer - you may even catch some surfers who have been waiting for a day like this.

Tel Aviv has many shopping centers you may enjoy, I especially like Dizengoff Center, because it encapsulates the very special Tel Aviv spirit, and it has a variety of options, including two movie theaters, many different food parlors, and many, many shops to choose from – including designer shops. It even has a Tatoo place on the upper floor on the southern part.

Movie Theater
If you have a car – you may want to visit “Cinema City”. This in the biggest cinema complex in Israel, with lots of food places, more than a dozen movie theaters, and a VIP theater that offers a very special experience.

The Jaffa Flea Market
The Jaffa flea market  is a very special place. It's an open-air market, but it's all been roofed in recent years, and if it's not extremely cold (it usually isn't) – this would be a good place to visit. If you're planning to visit the market, take an umbrella with you, just in case you want to cross the road to a nearby restaurant. There are many “Hummus” places just across the road.

Enjoy your day, and let us know if you have any more suggestions!
