If you are interested in bars and tourist restaurants go in the evening. Don't bother in the daytime- the place is boring; very little of a historical nature, a few shops and lots of empty restaurants. There is also a kids play area. You can...More

There's a smattering of great restaurants and entertainment here. On stage evenings there's everything from public Zumba (lots of folks there!) to music and other entertainment. And, did I mention, bumper cars and air hockey!

We had a good walk to the station. Fun to walk around. Look for the history signs & photos. Otherwise it’s shops & concession sales. Live music. The walking path is long. The area along the far south end is less used.

I don't know about the free shuttle but the old city is pretty easy to walk to by going past the King David hotel and ymca to the Jaffa gate.
