The Blind Museum in Holon is an experience everyone should try. In complete darkness is where you can experience things you’ve never felt before. Participants are taken into a pitch black room and follow a blind tour guide’s voice. Each participant is taken into a number of different rooms that use each of your senses, and for the remaining hour and a half, you experience a fraction of your tour guide’s life.

Gay Pride Parade
Tel Aviv is rated as the top city for gay people, and this event happens once a year. It is an experience no one should miss out on. The parade begins at Meir Park and travels down the boardwalk. The streets are packed with exciting people and extravagant floats. The parade comes to an end once you reach the concert with loud music and dancing all over the park, but the fun continues for the whole night.
The Shanti House is a place where troubled youth live when they have no one to turn to and get their lives back on track. A visit to the house is truly a heartwarming experience. Everyone there has a story and a struggle, but the beautiful part is that they were able to turn their lives around. The Shanti House makes you realize that there is a place for everyone in Israel.
