Destination or Attraction[edit]

The rule of thumb is: "do you sleep there?" I noticed in the official link that it's possible to sleep there if you are a group, but that the average visit is 3 hours long. This makes me suspect that it's actually an attraction which should go on a nearby destination page. What do you think? -- (WT-en) Mark 06:01, 17 Feb 2006 (EST)

As you have noted, Masada is more of an attraction rather than a destination. - (WT-en) Cybjorg 08:33, 17 Feb 2006 (EST)
It's also a cool jazz/improv band lead by John Zorn. ;) -- (WT-en) Mark 09:38, 17 Feb 2006 (EST)
Anyhow, which destination shall we move it too. Where would you suggest I stay for instance if I visit. -- (WT-en) Mark 09:46, 17 Feb 2006 (EST)
There are two main choices for lodging: the Dead Sea or Jerusalem. The Dead Sea resorts are extremely close, and Jerusalem (which is more popular and has more lodging choices) is just over an hour away. - (WT-en) Cybjorg 10:04, 17 Feb 2006 (EST)
I guess one of the Dead Sea resorts probably then, and we can put it under Get Out in Jerusalem. -- (WT-en) Mark 10:42, 17 Feb 2006 (EST)

Having been to Masada twice, I do think it warrants its own page -- it's a large and complex site, with its own restaurants and whatnot, and it's not really close to anything else. Ein Gedi is the closest of the resorts, but there's little if any logical connection between the two. (WT-en) Jpatokal 11:07, 17 Feb 2006 (EST)

I'm inclined to agree with (WT-en) Jpatokal. I think the article just needs a bit of expansion. - (WT-en) Cybjorg 12:29, 17 Feb 2006 (EST)
