You start the day with a coffee and newspaper in the quaint neighborhood coffee shop, wake up with the city that is constantly renewing itself, get to work easily, stop at Sarona Market on your way home, hop over to the mall, and end the day with a workout at the HaHashmonaim Country Club right at the foot of your building.

Savor wonderful and exotic menus in venues including the well-known and beloved Zozobra, the incomparable Onami, the superb Lehamim bakery, and more.

When you live at the corner of Carlebach and HaHashmonaim streets, all the culinary delights of Tel Aviv are right outside your door (or, at most, a short walk away). Of course, on the other hand, you live in the heart of the city, and can always stay home and order whatever you're craving. Yes, even in the middle of the night!
The Country Club
Begin your day with a swim in one of the Country Club's three beautiful pools within the TLV Mall, and follow up your swim with a refreshing shake. Then wind down in the evening with exercise in the fitness room, or in one of the dozens of classes taking place for children and adults. Spend quality time with your kids, or foster their independence by giving them a ball to take down to the basketball court for a game with friends.

Every morning begins with a brief jog in the park with my dog, Toffee. On days when I have a little more time, I put a bit more effort into my morning workout and run all the way to the beach and back.
After my run, I cross over to the Lehamim bakery on the other side of the street and pick up some warm oven-fresh rolls and a decaf with almond milk, just the way I like it. After my morning shower, my partner Chen, and I make sandwiches for the kids. The older one is already big enough to walk to the nearby Giv'on elementary school by himself, and we take the younger one to the kindergarten that's on the bottom floor of the tower.
I work outside the city, but Chen works in Tel Aviv, so he almost always takes public transport and leaves me with the car. Truth is, there's also public transport literally a minute from home that I could take to work, but I like to indulge myself… That's how it is when you have easy access to the Ayalon Highway and there's no problem finding parking when you come home.
In the afternoon, when the kids are enjoying their after-school activities at HaHashmonaim Country Club, I go for a swim in the semi-Olympic pool. I also take studio classes – Itzik's kickboxing class is a real favorite.
Our whole family eats dinner together in the dining nook, and sometimes (if we can find a babysitter) we go out afterward for a relaxing glass of wine at one of the area's many chic restaurants, or to a movie at the Cinematheque.
I start my day on the balcony overlooking the sea, enjoying my espresso and catching up on the news in the quiet and calm before the kids get up.
My office is pretty close to home. So close, in fact, that I can walk straight there. It's especially convenient on days when I take the kids to school. If I wanted, there are even days that I wouldn't have to use the car at all, except to go to a meeting further away.
I eat a business lunch at one of the area's charming restaurants. Occasionally, my wife picks the kids up from school and they all meet me at the restaurant so we can spend some quality family time together in the middle of the day.
I usually finish work late. When we used to live outside the city, I would only get back home well after the children had gone to sleep. We were lucky enough to be able to move closer to the office, so now I don't have to contend with traffic jams and, for the most part, I manage to get home in time for dinner and to put our kids to bed.
My wife usually likes to go out with friends in the evening. She has several good friends in our area and they often go to the movies, out for coffee or to the Country Club together. We've become close with a number of couples in the towers and we frequently go out with them for dinner or drinks at the restaurants downstairs.
We finish our day by unwinding with a glass of wine on the balcony… and enjoying those precious moments of tranquility after the kids are out for the count.
We both work at the Menachem Begin / Yigal Alon business complex, about 6-10 minutes from home, so we can allow ourselves the luxury of sleeping in a little more and enjoying our morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the park. Thanks to the convenience of having Lehamim bakery and Tatti in the mall, we always have something delicious to snack on with our coffee.
We usually ride to work on our bikes or electric scooters. If we have enough energy, we sometimes even walk.
What makes working close to home such a blessing is that we can always hop back there if a technician comes to fix something, or if we just feel like eating lunch together. On the weekends, we're in the habit of riding our bikes to check out and sample the mouthwatering new brunch options we've heard about in the city.
Two or three times a week, we go to the HaHashmonaim Country Club after work. Sharon prefers to do studio workouts, like yoga and Pilates, and Elad enjoys basketball with his friends from the neighborhood.
I try to meet my good friend at the mall at least once a month to catch up on all the latest news and trends.
Most of our friends live pretty close to us in Tel Aviv, and I've also met new people in the neighborhood who have become really good friends. About once a week, we get together at Porter & Sons or Mike's Place for a beer and to watch the game.
Mornings are my favorite time to get some exercise. If the weather's nice, I take an exhilarating run on the beach, and on days when I'd rather chill in my comfortable clothes, I just go downstairs to the exercise machines in the building's fitness room and work out there.
In the past, I lived outside the city, and worked in the Tel Aviv suburbs. Today, I still work in the suburbs, but at least I live in the city. I take my car in the morning, come back in the evening, park in the parking lot and forget about it. I can walk everywhere else from there because everything's so close. Tel Aviv is a world unto itself, and there's rarely a dull moment. My life has never been more full or exciting!
We're at work during the week, of course, but on Friday afternoons and Saturdays, my partner and I really enjoy leisurely strolls along the city streets. This is by far the best way to appreciate the magic of Tel Aviv! We visit the temporary exhibits in the local museums, wander around the Carmel Market, eat a delicious brunch, marvel at the local architecture, and, in general, enjoy the city as if we were tourists.
There's nothing we love more than culture. Almost every evening we go to a play, a performance or a movie.
On weekends, we entertain my children, or my partner's, and we keep a special bedroom for them for sleepovers. In the morning, we take them for breakfast at one of the cafés at the foot of our building… It took a while, but we're finally cool again!
We both worked our entire lives so that we'd be able to enjoy this kind of leisure. Each day begins with a cup of tea while soaking in magnificent views of the city. At least once a week, we try to take a walk in the park, just to get the blood flowing.
We're close friends with several couples who also decided to move to Tel Aviv as they approached retirement. What can I tell you? It's like being 20 again. We meet in the cafés in the morning and catch up on our lives, sometimes all of us together, and sometimes just the women. We also enjoy exploring the mall to find the perfect present for the grandchildren.
We make lunch entirely from the choicest fresh produce and foods we've purchased at the nearby Sarona Market. Twice a week, we help our children by picking up our grandkids from kindergarten. It’s a real pleasure to live so close that we can see them all so often.
We savor every minute of our playtime with the grandchildren until one of their parents comes to pick them up. The kids really love the view of the city, and they have a ball at the mall's playroom. On days we don't have the grandkids, we enjoy going to museums or movies in the afternoons, and sometimes we go swimming at the Country Club and relax in the sauna or Jacuzzi.
At least one evening a week we get together with our neighborhood friends and go to a play or listen to fascinating talks. In this city, there's always something fun to do. Sometimes we're just invited over to friends' houses, and sometimes we just stay home. We've really earned this down time!
I get up early with the birds, even before the city itself wakes up. It's a delight to start the day with a book, and to watch the sunrise, or to go out for a walk in the park with Vincent, my poodle, before the day begins for everyone else.
My friends and I meet at the Country Club for a walking group, or for Pilates in the park. Sometimes they join me for a cup of coffee up at my place afterwards, and we sit on the penthouse balcony and gossip.
It's very important to me to give back to the community, so I volunteer at a few different organizations a couple of times a month. I'm often asked to go all over the country, so I'm happy to know that I have a reserved parking spot when I return home. Also, when I take the train, it's so convenient to have the station very close to home.
Tel Aviv's city center is walking distance and my friends and I love visiting the designer boutiques to see what's new and to support Israeli fashion. On days when I can treat myself, I'm lucky that everything is so close by! My cosmetologist and hair stylist are only a few minutes away and they're always happy to see me when I want to freshen up my look.
I'm very interested in art and am committed to keeping up with the city's art scene, so I visit galleries frequently. All of the city's important art institutions are nearby and are really easy to get to, either by public transport or even by walking a short distance. My dream is to open a gallery in the area one day.
I love listening to music, and I'm always happy to go to the opera or to a concert. I go with my friends, or with my husband when he returns from his business trips overseas, or sometimes even by myself when I feel spontaneous. I consider myself so lucky to have such an exciting and full life, and to have the opportunity to enjoy all the interests that are so close to my heart.
