Arad Off The Beaten Path: 45 reviews and 63 photos
The story of Arad, our desert city, started WAY BACK in 1964 when it was established. At that time there was no road connecting it to the nearest town of Beer-Sheva, 40 kilometers west of Arad. There were only a few dusty unpaved roads inside the town limits connecting the 60 some houses like the one you see in the photo. As people made gardens and parks, the homes became beautiful and people continued to build and the town to expand. Today this first area, called Rishoniem, which means "the first" has degraded and is now mostly abandonded. A pity since this is the birth place of our town.
