Ginosar rating : 4 4 0 out of 5 / 1 votes

Ginosar is a Kibbutz on the western banks of the Kinneret. It was founded in 1937 on the eve of the festival of Purim by a group of young socialists. Originally an agricultural community, its primary source of income is now from tourism. In 1986 there was a severe drought and when the level of the lake dropped, a frame of a fishing boat was revealed and it has been dated to 100-70 CE and is known as the Sea of Galilee Boat. It was rescued, placed in a special tank and displayed at the Beit Yigal Allon Museum.
Ginosar is home to a quaint resort village that provides a calm, country vacation and offers a variety of activities in the area.  attractions include the annual Jacob's Ladder Festival- a three-day festival of world-wide music; the Adam BaGalil Musem- a hands-on museum and educational center that explores early settlement in the Galilee; bike rental; jeeps and dune buggy trips; horseback riding; sailing on the Jordan river; extreme sport activities; spa and hot springs and much, much more.
