I came to Arad for the first time to the festival as a teenager, and I keep coming back there many times to visit family.
Here are some recommended places:
📍Moav Viewpoint - One of the most beautiful viewpoints on the desert. At the beginning of the trail, you will find the " selfie bench" that asks you to take a picture of yourself against the background of the open landscapes. The path (marked green-white) leads you to the famous plane statue and down, as far as you want to walk (a linear route) into the desert.
📍Muza - one of the well-known and oldest restaurants in Arad. It has a lovely football pub design and good pub food. I have eaten there lots of times, and it is always good. Open on Saturday.
📍Kaprochka - a cool small place that serves excellent carbs - Pizza, Calzone, Focaccia, and also Salads and Desserts.
📍Shita Brewery - A brewery in the artists' district with a cute pub. They serve several types of beer in the barrel they produce. They also have a visitor center.
📍Shopping - Zim Center. The shops are closed on Saturdays
In Zin Center, there is also a big shadowed playground for children
📍 Coffee Studio - a charming cafe in the artists' quarter located inside a gallery. The owner of the place bakes cakes and cookies. She makes excellent coffee from beans that she grinds on the spot. The seating inside the gallery is delightful.
And of course - half an hour drive and you are on the shores of the Dead Sea - and it is always recommended.
