8. Mount Tabor\r
Famous for being the sire of the battle between the army of Jabin and Barak, Mount Tabor looks so green and peaceful under the clothes that its hard to believe that a famous battle took place here, or that it is also said to be the where the Transfiguration of Jesus took place. Talk about a place with a lot of significance to its history. Its located just west of the Sea of Galilee, so if youre on both a scenic and historical vacation, this region is the place to be.\r

7. The Great Synagogue\r
The Great Synagogue appears enormous and mighty on both its exterior and its interior. The central synagogue located in Jerusalem was completed in 1982, with a capacity for nearly 1,400 people. \r
\r
6. Sea of Galilee\r
This large freshwater lake lies in northeastern Israel in the Jordan Rift Valley--which means earthquakes are common. Yet many love coming to the beach every year, with tourism being a big part of the economy in the area. It has a circumference of about 33 miles, or 53 km. \r
\r
5. Tel Aviv Promenade\r
Also known as Tayelet (tay yeh let), the Tel Aviv Promenade is made up of 6 promenades along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. In general, the beach is a popular destination in most cities. But what makes the sandy shore so unique in Tel Aviv is the aquamarine waters, tall buildings, and neatly designed walls and pavement that people often walk and bike through. The more organized arrangement of the promenade that people recognize today has been planned since the 1930s. Its aesthetically pleasing implementation is in part what started the more tourist heavy traffic for the city years ago.\r

4. Baháí Shrine (bah high) and Gardens\r
One of the most exquisite sights to see in Israel are the Baháí gardens and the Shrine. The gold orange dome you see here is the shrine that stands beside the just as famous gardens and is the second holiest shrine as it is known as the resting place of the religion of Baháís founders. Because of this, the Baháí Shrine and Gardens are a pivotal place of pilgrimage. The landscape and structure you see before you were built around the mausoleum, added years later. It serves as a place of confluence for the leaders of the Baháí faith. \r

3. Rosh HaNikra Grottoes\r
The beautiful grottoes of Rosh HaNikra are located on Israels coast along the Mediterranean Sea. The white cliffs unroll into caves down below in the water, where on the inside the rock is more various in color. Thanks to the sea waves eroding away at the white chalk, these scenic caves were created, many intersecting with one another to form interesting tunnels. To go see the grotto yourself, a cable car is available for visitors to get you there safely, as the drop to the caves is pretty steep.\r
\r
2. The Dead Sea\r
Perhaps one of the most well-known places in Israel is that of the Dead Sea--so named for its high concentration of salt. So high, in f, that plants and animals cannot survive in the conditions of the Dead Sea. Nearly 10 times saltier than the ocean, the hypersaline waters also mean anyone can float in it, which is why lots of vacation pictures taken at the Dead Sea consist of people aimlessly floating in the water, just relaxing. It is also the deepest lake of its kind in the world, measuring at 304 m, which is almost 1,000 feet in depth. \r
\r
1. City of David\r
When its a place that shows up in the Bible, of course people are going to come from all over, no matter what your religion is, to come and see the City of David. The archeological site is of an old settlement, with lots of its rich history preserved. Parts of the site people can visit include the Mount of Olives, The Shiloah Pool, The Spring House, and The Central Water Drainage Channel. Visitors get to take a walk through the old ruins where people who lived through famous stories once walked as well.
