So, I've been putting together a list of things and places to do or see in Israel, and it is becoming quite long. The internet is a wonderful resource, and I have found many interesting things. I would also like to thank Shlomo for his suggestions.

Here is what I have so far. Obviously, we will not be able to cover all of these things, and I will be constantly adding and removing items from the list based on how much time we have.

Please, please, please, leave some input. Are some of these places not worth visiting? Did I miss other interesting places that I should go to? Have you been to any of these places and have something to say about them? I need all the feedback I can get at this point, because I have never been to Israel before and I am not very good with planning.

Here's the list, most of which is categorized by region (except the first few things):

Masada + archaeological museum
The Dead Sea
Ein Gedi
Ashdod - visiting relatives
Kfar Kedem (Biblical Village)
Pioneer Museum (Kibbutz Yifat) (northern Israel)
