Ben Yehuda street is a pedestrian zone with over priced souvenir shops, street restaurants and coffee shops. Day and evening time is different. You will find street musicians and other street entertainers.

Interesting shops selling curios and other wares, lined with restaurants and pubs and great place to stroll, chill and soak in the ambience of Jerusalem.

This remains a "cross-road" in "downtown Jerusalem," but there are other interesting malls (walkable areas) to explore, with cafes and curiosity shops. Both the First Train Station and the Mamilla Mall are interesting alternatives for those who wish to hang out or browse.

i always enjoy being on this busy, lively street. It is a must-do for every visitor to the Holy City. Save your gift buying for here, and be sure to have a snack or a meal in one of the many outdoor cafes.
