For the children, travelling by train is an attraction, and when it is not rash hour travelling by train could be fun for adults as well. Looking at the changing views through the large window or smiling with satisfaction when seeing the long traffic jams stretching along the roads while you pass by them quickly, is a real pleasure. So for those who want to try a little different experience, we have put together some places to which the train can take you (sometimes with a little help from busses and taxis).

The Acre Stop: A tour rich in history between points in time in Old Acre, from its days during the Crusaders period and the Ottoman Empire and until today.

The Haifa Stop (Merkaz HaShmona): A tour on foot that passes through the Templer houses of the German Colony, continues to the magnificent Baha’i Gardens and ends in the Statue Garden which provides a lookout point toward the bay and the city of Haifa.

The Hadera Stop: A Tour among the historical sites of the city of Hadera and finishing with a picnic in the Hadera’s eucalyptus forest.

The Ashkelon Stop: A tour in Ashkelon’s National Park and additional archeological sites that are spread around the city of Ashkelon and present remains from the city’s fascinating past.

The Yarkonim Stop: With all due respect to picnics on the bank of a stream, the area of the source of the Yarkon Stream and Tel Afek (Afek Mound) offers a recommended and modular trip that is full of history and archeology.

The Tel Aviv Stop (Tel Aviv University): An enjoyable and surprising visit to the fascinating museums of Ramat Aviv and the magnificently beautiful Botanical Garden, and finishing with a relaxed picnic in the most surprising piece of nature in the city of Tel Aviv.

The Tel Aviv Stop (HaHaganah): A tour following the history of Tel Aviv, which passes through interesting places that signify its beginning, from the American Colony and the Train Station (HaTaHana) Complex and until Neve Tzedek and the White City.

The Netanya Stop: During the spring many people arrive at the Irises Nature Reserve in order to see the Irises blossom. But it is worth while coming here during other seasons as well and go on an easy and beautiful trail which also includes the picturesque Poleg Stream estuary.
