Getting AroundGETTING AROUND:
There is convenient access (either on foot or by car) to both train stations and bus stops.
Highway 6 is a five minutes drive, offering rapid means to Haifa to the north or Jerusalem to the southeast, in less than an hour. Tel Aviv is a mere 13-15 kilometers away and can be reached either by bus, train, taxi or private car. It is a twenty-minute drive to the beach outside of commute times. Other Things to NoteThe apartment is in the Magdiel neighborhood of Hod Hasharon. Hod Hasharon was formed in 1964 as four small villages---Magdiel, Kfar Hadar, Ramat Hadar and Ramataim---were united into one municipality. Founded in the 1920's, these four villages were for decades small agricultural communities growing citrus groves and orchards in the fertile terrain of the Sharon region, in the center of Israel a short 13 kilometers to the northeast of Tel Aviv.
Officially declared a city in 1990, Hod Hasharon has experienced rapid growth with a mixed land use pattern of parks, orchards, industrial parks, high-density residential neighborhoods and the low-density neighborhoods of the original historic villages. The city still retains a pleasant 'village' atmosphere while offering all the amenities of a modern urban environment.
