Vacationing in Eilat – Fun and Sun Corona Style

16 0 0

Last week, my husband and I had the good fortune of vacationing in Eilat, before Hanukkah. It was our first vacation since before the coronavirus, and we wanted to beat the rush. It was beautiful. The weather was perfect and the sun was shining every day. The palm trees, flowers, and water were so very good for my soul.

Eilat is as close to Hawaii as we will get in Israel.

I am very proud of Eilat. The city has really upped its game since I was there last, quite a few years ago. The boardwalk has been upgraded and the beaches are clean. The municipality has set up more than 100 stations around the city with free activities. There were posters announcing the times and places of each event, like yoga, aerobics and musical entertainment. Outdoors, organized and free, that’s a win-win for the city and the people.

Watching the preparations for the Desert Marathon was so exciting for me, as I wondered which of my neighbors and friends would be coming down to run through our southernmost desert. Setting up for the Desert Marathon on the boardwalk.
