New Yorkers may know that Israel has the Western Wall, the Dead Sea and the Sea of Galilee. But what about the Israel you’ve never seen? The country's nonstop nightlife, booming restaurant scene inspired by a diversity of cultures, top wineries and underground art scene are just a sampling of Israel's progressive, no-holds-barred offering. Known as the Start-up Nation, where ideas run wild, this place is alive with entrepreneurs, balancing a lifestyle of partying and achievement. Go to Tel Aviv’s Gordon Street for gallery hopping, or head to the hidden charms of Jerusalem’s Bezalel Street—home of the prestigious Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design—to experience how local artists hone their crafts. Or maybe jumping straight into one of the massive outdoor festivals is more your speed. Here we take the road less traveled through the dynamic side of Israel you didn’t even know existed.
