Israel with Kids / Boating on the Yarkon River
Throw your kids an oar, so to speak, and take them out on the not-so-high seas of Tel Aviv's only river, where you can spend a day paddling about in the middle of a metropolis.
You're looking for a change of scenery but don't want to go very far. You want to get out, but don't have many hours to spare. Preferably, you'd like to do something outdoorsy. What better fits the bill than an afternoon of boating on the Yarkon River?
