Explore The Modiin Area

Over the last year, I have explored these off-the-beaten-track areas. Some of my favorite areas to explore are around the centrally located Modiin. I have created an ever-growing video playlist on YouTube of these adventures so you can watch and plan your adventures in advance. 

Tomb Of The Unknown - Ben Shemen

I took my kids to explore a local Tomb of the Unknown. When I was in elementary school I was obsessed with hieroglyphics, treasure maps, and treasures in ancient Egypt. Being able to pick up the kids from school and take them to explore ancient ruins and an actual tomb is unbelievable!

Ayalon Canada Park

I took my 2 oldest to explore Ayalon Canada Park located in central Israel between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. We discovered the Tomb of Ibn Jabal, a cave, and PHD student, Tomer Urca, who is tracking giant beetles with mini trackers! Oh, and there are also some incredible drone shots of the park and its breathtaking views!

Emek Zevulun Parks

I am happy to be able to show you a small piece of the beauty that is Modiin, Israel. Modiin has been coined the “best-planned city in Israel”. One of the reasons is because of the beautiful parks built throughout the city. Here is a small glimpse at the beauty that is Modiin.

Wonders of The World Park

The newest children park in the city of Modiin, Israel is called: ‘Wonders of the World Park’ and was designed by a 3rd grader that sent her idea to the mayor. Includes the Pyramids, Great Wall of China, Stonehenge, and Easter Island! If you are looking for a local outing with the kids with plenty of eating options available in the area.

Moshav Gimzo

We found an amazing local fruit picking orchard, קטיף עצמי בגמזו, located on Moshav Gimzo, founded in 1950. The orchards include the most delicious all you can eat while you pick pomegranates, limes, and clementines. The costs of admission are minimal, and you only pair a small fee for each box of fruit you bring home. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful in both English and Hebrew. If you are looking for something to do for 3-4 hours, I would highly recommend making the trip!
