With endless free wifi, the hippest cafés, and nightlife, and sites to keep you occupied for days, some might question why you would ever leave Tel Aviv. However, this August use your final carefree days of summer to think outside the box, and explore events happening all around the country. In the north, music, sports, and art, are coming to Haifa, while weekend culture festivals take over Karmiel and Tiberias. In the south, there will be Afro-Israeli music and art in a hip Mitzpe Ramon hostel, as hot air balloons fill the Negev sky. From the lesser-explored cities of Zichron Yaakov to Akko, we guarantee that wherever your travels take you, these happening events will be well worth the drive.
