You can go to the Tourism office (by the clock) and get a map of the area. Do a walking tour of the old city, visit the Museum, hang out on the beach!

We walked to Jaffa along the beach so it took a long time (~6.6km). Would advise getting a taxi there and exploring the quaint streets and small theater.

The old city of Jaffa is quaint and fun and full of life. Recently, Jaffa has become more gentrified with lots of galleries and attractions. It is definitely worth exploring.

You can but just be aware of the cut off time on a Friday which is around 1400. Saturday was not a problem to go visit and see everything.
