Choosing Family-Friendly Accommodations
Kid-Friendly Hotels and Resorts
One of the first considerations for a family trip to Israel is where to stay. Opt for family-friendly hotels and resorts that offer amenities like spacious rooms, swimming pools, and activities designed for kids. Some resorts even have dedicated children’s clubs, ensuring that parents get some relaxation time too.
Israel boasts several interactive activities that cater to children’s curiosity while also engaging in education. TheTower of David in Jerusalem, the Clore Garden of Science Museum & the Israel Children’s Museum in Holon offer hands-on exhibits that make learning fun.
Virtually Experience the Kotel
The VR experience at the Western Wall, or Kotel, in Jerusalem is a transformative journey that allows visitors to connect deeply with this iconic site. Through immersive technology, you can virtually step into the heart of the Old City and witness the ancient stones of the Western Wall as they’ve stood for centuries. Explore the rich history, traditions, and prayers of this sacred place, gaining a profound understanding of its significance to people from all walks of life.
Exploring Ancient History
Make history come alive for your kids by exploring ancient sites together. The Caesarea National Park, with its well-preserved Roman ruins, is a great place to start. Or maybe at one of the most historic & ancient cities in the world – Jerusalem!
Nature and Adventure
Israel’s diverse landscapes provide plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventures. Take your family hiking in the lush Golan Heights, snorkeling in the Red Sea’s coral reefs, or exploring the scenic trails of the Negev Desert.
Dig for a Day!
Dig-for-a-Day is a hands-on experience that combines excavating, sifting, pottery examination, and exploration of an extensive archaeological cave system. Vast underground man-made rooms have been uncovered here over the past four decades with stunning discoveries along the way, some of which can now be found in museums.
Embracing Cultural Experiences
Experience the beauty of Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath, in Israel. It’s a special time for family gatherings and communal celebrations. Participate in a Friday night Shabbat dinner to get a taste of this unique tradition.
Learning Hebrew Phrases
Teaching your kids a few basic Hebrew phrases can enhance their cultural immersion and make interactions with locals more engaging. Simple greetings like “Shalom” (hello) and “Toda” (thank you) go a long way.
