In a couple of weeks' time I shall pick up a hire car in Eilat and head for the Golan Heights, taking 2 days and 1 night. I would appreciate any tips on where to break the journey, and which route to take.
The Dead Sea area would be possible for a stop, but many of the hotels I've looked at seem short on character - I want to feel and enjoy that I'm in Israel, and not just any holiday place.
As an alternative, I considered overnighting somewhere in the Negev, but couldn't find anywhere which attracted me. Again, I'm looking for somewhere out of the ordinary.
After spending time in the north, I intend to drive down to Jerusalem on Route 90/Route 1, which I've seen recommended here. I prefer not to travel the same route twice, so what would be the best routing going north?
