Time Out says

Dubbed "The White City" for its UNESCO-recognized World Cultural Heritage Site of over 4,000 Bauhaus and International Style buildings from the 1930s,Tel Aviv's central hub for strolling, tech start ups and coffee kiosks is an unassuming diamond in the rough. The area's main rue, Rothschild Boulevard, is a landmark for protests, parades and people-watching; a veritable petri dish of residents and tourists going to and from their day - including bronzed beefcakes, techie hipsters, dreadie festival folk, flip-flopped startup visionaries, suited up multi-hyphenate entrepreneurs, Filipino nannies and their elderly companions, and gorgeous stroller-pushing moms on mat-leave. The manicured neighborhood's raging restaurant scene pays homage to cultivating the local lay of the land, and famous Israeli chefs are equally at home crafting innovative delicacies as they are helming street food joints with a twist. The area's entirely walkable (and cyclable) grid makes for a seamless axis for transport across Tel Aviv and strolling with your neck craned to the endless blue above, you'll find an awe-inspiring smattering of not only the largest number of Bauhaus buildings in the world, but also a progressively shifting skyline; dilapidated facades from Tel Aviv's inception sidling stark white emblems of the city to come.
