Avid outdoor people will love Arad and its proximity to attractions like the Dead Sea, Zohar Peak and Lookout, the Israeli National Trail, both deserts, Mitzpe Ramon, and the ancient city of Tel Arad. The two ancient settlements at Tel Arad dates to the Bronze Age and the later mid 2nd century AD. Mitzpe Ramon is a great day trip from Arad for hikes along the edge of a giant crater.
