Tourist tip #289 / The Gan Meir gay center in Tel Aviv
The center is the place to go if you're interested in tapping into Israel's LGBT community.
Gan Meir, an impressive public park in the bustling heart of Tel Aviv, is an oasis of green in the crowded city. Located between King George and Tchernichovsky streets, Gan Meir is home to lawns, a pretty water lily pond and a fenced-in dog park. And if you look up, you'll see a large, rainbow flag flying proudly from the roof of the municipal center for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
