Now, you can enjoy the boardwalk with its bars, restaurants and shops — making it perfect for a summers night. The Wishing Bridge connects Jaffa to the HaPisgah Gardens, where you can see panoramic views of Tel Aviv. The Old City on Kedumim Square is a touristy spot with cafes, and the Franciscan St. Peter’s Church. Walk around the flea market, or pishpeshuk, where you can find boutiques and antiques.
