sea and beaches
My main pluses of living in Haifa are the beautiful nature, relatively low prices for everything, lots of local entertainment (even free!), creative atmosphere, transport hub (easy to get anywhere).
There are some nuances: when it gets dark in the lower city, it becomes dreadful to walk, as you meet different personalities and companies. In general, Haifa is not the most tidy city, you can easily get into a dog surprise, and rubbish in some back alleys are not cleaned up for years.
But if you weigh the pros and cons, Haifa is a super place to live and see for yourself to experience Israel in all its contradictions. See a separate beach for animals and lose weight while you run through the mountains to the Osher Ad shop for shopping.
