Top Things to See in Lebanon

Lebanon, a small nation in the Middle East, may be known more for its prior wars, Hezbollah, or the current refugee crisis with Syria. However, what most don’t know about Lebanon is how many amazing things there are to do. Beirut is a major financial hub and one of the liveliest cities in the Mediterranean. Lebanon has historical sights, scenic mountains, waterfalls, wineries, food, and of course the Beirut nightlife. Here are our favorites.
