Here is my "Do Not Miss" list...
The "Tayelet": For a spectacular view of both the old and new parts of Jerusalem, back a picnic basket and head to Haas Promenade! My favorite time to visit is the evening, right before sunset, where you can hear the Muslim call for prayer echoing through the hills...
The Liberty Bell Park: Play equipment, skateboard rink, basketball courts, book fairs, theatre, and more. A real fun place to spend an afternoon!
The Lebanese Restaurant in Abu Gosh: For a taste of award-winning hummus, try this fantastic restaurant in a very cool part of Jerusalem!
