Whether you’re in town looking for your dream apartment or simply taking a day trip into the city, Tel Aviv’s Dizengoff street has a lot to offer its visitors. Dating back to the 1930’s, this street was established as a tribute to Meir Dizengoff, the city’s first mayor.

In the city center of Tel Aviv, lies Israel’s first shopping center. Conveniently situated on the corner of King George and Dizengoff streets, Dizengoff Center includes over 420 stores with just about everything you can ever imagine. Designed by prominent Israeli architect, Yitzhak Yashar, this 3-story building has an interior resembling a maze–offering locals an experience of walking in an unintended spiral when trying to get from one end of the building to the next.

Along with clothing stores and perfume shops, the Center is trademarked for its movie theater, cafes with accessible wifi, and a number of weekly exhibitions showcasing the latest of Tel Aviv’s art scene. For the athletes in the crowd, there is a fitness facility with a rooftop swimming pool that is accessible to members 24 hours a day, and foot massage stands for a bit of on-the-go relaxation. Ladies, if you are ever on a lunch break and are looking for an afternoon pampering session, there are booths where you can get your nails done.

Dizengoff Square

Dizengoff Square in Tel Aviv.

Situated at the intersection of six main streets, Dizengoff Square was created in 1930 as a tribute to the Mayor’s wife. Meant to ease congestion of city traffic, the Square was expanded and elevated in 1970 to allow pedestrians easier access to all parts of the city center. One of the Square’s main attractions is the beautiful fire and water fountain that was designed by well renowned artist, Yaacov Agam, in 1986. The fountain was designed to give city trotters a 3D illusion based on an optical design.

On Friday afternoons, the Square is filled with a number of musicians, artists looking to showcase their latest creations, and locals rushing to do their last minute Shabbat errands. 

If you happen to be in the area, you might witness the Fountain’s concerto consisting of classical music with water and fire shooting out and upwards as the crowd gathers, and the music comes to an end.
