Great street to explore, my hotel was just off this street so spent a lot of time walking along the street.

Lots of variety with restaurants, cafes, shopping and entertainment.

Always felt safe in the area even
Late at night, good option at night to have dinner.

This pedestrian street has a variety of local stores and casual restaurants. It is ok but nothing special.

Jerusalem is a magical city like none other. The ancient and modern history is everywhere you walk. The people are amazing and friendly. The food is wonderful wherever you go. Felt very safe at all times as well. Do not wait any longer to go!

This used to be a must gathering place for youth. On a Thursday night (in the winter) and Saturday night (in the summer) you will still find the crowds of youth from around the world gathering. If you above 21, skip this. The tourist stores have great selections - BECAUSE their prices are so high they make a fortune from you. This is no longer a must see. It is the opposite (unless you are 21 or younger)

Great place to walk, enjoy a snack and negotiate. We walked along this street several times as it's near our (Arthur) hotel. The only major thing I'd add is that there are some very distinctive things in some of the shops - and it's definitely expected in many that you will negotiate a price. We did this. Shop keepers in many cases will give an additional discount for cash.

Stay far away from this booth in the market. We were taken advantage of and over charged by these men. I have attached the picture of the booth. We went back with the concierge of the hotel. He tried to negotiate with the men and let them know that we were overcharged, and they would not hear of it, or friends that we were traveling with were taken advantage of by these people as well.

Everyone seems to know this place - great food, fun stores, and lots of "people watching". It's a long hill, so be prepared to walk uphill at some point.

Lots of regular shopping here... shoes, clothes, a couple of pharmacy's, etc. There is also a number of restaurants you can choose from. So if you're looking for a fun place that gets lively at night, but still feels safe, this is it.

Ben Yehuda Street is a great place to hang out and stroll. There are usually many very talented street musicians playing and it has great little shops. It is fun to sit and relax with good food or coffee and enjoy life in Jerusalem,
