We rode the new light-rail all the way out, more to check out the line. When we arrived, we had a great view over the valley and the newly placed Calder is almost finished! Nice journey!

Take time to visit the young soldiers not just Herzl and Begin monuments. Check out the monument for WWII and the Submarine monument too. There are many memorials worth visiting around the entire area. Take time.

I enjoy the grounds. And the memorial to the father of modern zionism is well done. It makes one take responsability.

The relatively new Herzl Museum at the not-new Mt. Herzl cemetery is not to be missed. It's a great introduction to Zionism and the State of Israel's history for those unfamiliar. Even those who have a lifetime of reading behind them on the topic will enjoy the presentation, as it is artistic and high tech and very well done. WARNING: You need an advance reservation. Be sure to specify if you need a tour in English. The new light-rail from the center of Jerusalem takes you right to this site, so it should really not be missed by tourists traveling on their own in Israel.

You have got to go to the Herzl Museum on Mount Herzl. It lays an indispendable foundation for understanding the creation of Israel. Our kids were able to follow the tour & movie & understand what really happened. This is great for adults too.

Also, don't miss the headstones for Rabin & other heroic Israelis. It's stirring!
