Things to do in Haifa

Baha'i Gardens and Golden Dome
Climbing up the slope of Mount Carmel, this geometric complex of gardens surrounds the Golden Dome, the resting place of the Prophet-Herald of the Bahá’í Faith. Each of the nine terraces is immaculately groomed, with gravelled paths alongside flower beds and hedges. As you stroll the gardens, the city and the Mediterranean sparkle below you.
Louis Promenade
Stroll along tree-lined Louis Promenade for sweeping views across Haifa. The bay sparkles below you, pink bougainvillaea dotting the path. There are benches for relaxing and playgrounds for the kids. You'll also get views over the romantic Bahá'í Gardens, which is adjacent to the promenade and makes for a lovely stop after your walk.
Dado Beach
This pretty sandy strip is fitted out with everything you need for a perfect beach day. There are umbrellas and chairs along the shore, a boardwalk packed with restaurants, pubs and coffee shops, and even free WiFi. The dance arena hosts weekly public dances and there are playgrounds for the little ones. Disabled visitors will find easy access via ramps.

City is ok, downtown doesn't have too much in the way of tourist attractions but it's a good location to have as a base to travel to from to the northern attractions of Israel.

Getting from place to place in the city can be traumatizing as most of the city is built on the mountain. Lots of windy roads. But beautiful city and lovely people.

I like the waterfront and how you could enjoy a great meal and watch the people strolling or running along the beach. Beautiful gardens and incredible views of the Mediterranean Sea. Local buses were so easy to use throughout the city.
