The highlight of the district is the suspended orange tree installation. Nahalat Binyamin Street Market is the perfect spot to purchase local crafts, ranging from wood carvings to paintings.

Sarona Market, hosting a range of speciality food vendors, and Carmel Market, which is Tel Aviv's largest, are two excellent alternatives that deserve a place on your weekend in Tel Aviv itinerary. Park Hayarkon is popular with locals and is an excellent place to relax with a picnic on a sunny Tel Aviv afternoon. The urban space and green lung of the city also facilitates a range of sports and a charming rock garden featuring over 3,500 species of plants.
