What do I need to know about living in Haifa?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Haifa, they said:

"Before retiring in Haifa, expats should familiarize themselves with the local culture and customs. It is also important to research the cost of living in Haifa, as well as the availability of healthcare and other services. Additionally, expats should consider the climate in Haifa, as it can be quite hot and humid in the summer months. Finally, expats should make sure to obtain the necessary visas and permits before moving to Haifa," wrote one member in Haifa.

"If you want a quiet family centered lifestyle go to Haifa. If you're single and want night-life go to Tel Aviv. If you want musuems and history go to Jerusalem," remarked one expat who made the move to Haifa.
