Each tourist attraction offers a unique view and meaning to people. The same thing applies to the thousand of streets in the world that claim to be among the most famous in the world.
Here are five world-famous streets that are frequently photographed and visited by tourists for different reasons.
1. Las Vegas Strip
The gambling capital of the world, sits in the middle of the southern Nevada desert. Casinos are everywhere in Las Vegas, but it is in this strip stretching along Las Vegas Boulevard South where most of the city’s casinos can be found. The strip features gigantic casino hotels, decorated with lavish lights and details to mimic a fantasy-like atmosphere.
However, for romantic lights and attractions, Paris’ Champs-Elysées beats the previous strip. This famous avenue attracts tourists, particularly honeymooners, because of its beautiful night lights and chic little shops and cafes located throughout area. The western end of the popular street leads to the Arc de Triomphe, which is another popular spot wherein visitors can climb for a breathtaking view of the Champs-Elysées.
3. Orchard Road
Orchard Road is the world-famous shopping district in Singapore. Named after the orchard of fruits that the street led to, Orchard Road is decked with malls, upscale restaurants, cafes, hotels and nightclubs. During the holiday season, the street becomes a Christmas venue with its over the top lights and decorations, with reindeers on palm trees and gingerbread houses covered in fake snow.
4. Abbey Road
If you’re a The Beatles fan, you’re probably familiar with their iconic album cover where George, Ringo, Paul and John cross a pedestrian. That pedestrian is located at London’s Abbey Road, which happened to be the album’s name as well. Because of it being their best-selling album—and the last one they had before disbanding—the street became a world-famous attraction where people come here to recreate their own version of Abbey Road album.
5. Hollywood Walk of Fame
Who doesn’t know the Hollywood Walk of Fame? This landmark in Los Angeles immortalizes the stars of Hollywood by embedding their names in pink star plaques in charcoal terrazzo squares along the walkway of the boulevard. Over 2,400 actors, musicians, directors, producers and other significant names in the entertainment industry have been commemorated in this famous avenue.
