I don't know why, but I didn't find Megiddo as compelling as other National Parks in Israel that I visited. I found Bet She'an and Zippori to be much more interesting to me. Perhaps if we had a guide, I would have gotten much more...More

Our last stop of the day was Tel Megiddo National Park to see the spot where Armageddon is supposed to occur. The tel overlooks the valley where the final battle between good and evil is supposed to happen.
