Avenida 9 De Julio, Buenos Aires

(4/5 based on 3,000+ reviews on the web)
Touted as the widest street in the world, Avenida 9 De Julio cuts through the heart of the city and offers access to some of its major landmarks. The street's name commemorates Argentina's Independence Day, July 9, 1816. Modeled after Champs Elysees, the urban highway boasts seven lanes of traffic in each direction and measures 140 m (459 ft) across. Enjoy a stroll down the avenue, or test your nerves by trying to cross the monster street in Buenos Aires' typically hectic traffic. The area is worth visiting during both daytime and evening hours, but be aware of pickpockets after dark.
