Quite a unique thoroughfare through the middle of the city. An incredibly wide tree lined avenue surrounded by beautiful buildings. We walked up and down each side of the road studying all the architecture and history lining this great avenue. There a very few sights like this in main cities.

This city-block wide avenue may have been designed for the car, but is nothing short of breathtaking for the pedestrian as well. Many landmarks dot the avenue, including the Obelisk. This tree planted boulevard may not have the charm of Champs Elysees, but it's still a unique Buenos Aires visit.

This is a wide interesting road with some impressive buildings and structures. You can cross the road easily because there are several crossings controlled by lights. There is a large obelisk, a building with an interesting picture of Eva Peron and a statue of Iguazi Falls in aid of it being voted a wonder of the world.

The scale of this street doesn't hit you until you are standing in the middle of it. Its name honors Independence Day, July 9, 1816. The avenue runs for about one kilometer. It has up to seven lanes in each direction and is flanked on either side by parallel streets of two lanes each. There are two wide medians between... More

If you go to Buenos Aries you will no doubt see this street. It is 10 lanes wide and has 4 crossing stations. Get in a crowd and link arms and brave the crossing at least once but when you are told to walk - walk fast. Take time to experience some walking up the middle there are great spots... More

We just about walked the entire length of this amazing Avenue! About 16 lanes wide with separate lanes for buses. The rest are for cars and plenty of them! It reminded me of the Champs Elysees in Paris!

This ranks tops alongside the greatest streets of the world -- the Champs Elysees, the Royal Mile, and Venice's Grand Canal; though it does not have the lights of Broadway or the Vegas Strip, it is every bit as impressive as the widest avenue in the world, helped by the fact that it has the city's Obelisk at its center...

Avenida 9 De Julio is the widest avenue in the world. Its name honours Argentina's Independence Day, July 9, 1816. The avenue has seven lanes in each direction plus two lanes for turning to the side streets (flanked on either side). Total 18 lanes. The boulevard is so wide, it's hard to go across in one traffic light. So in... More

Supposedly biggest boulevard in the world. Impressive in scope but it is just a big street. Lots of sights along the way. It will be on any city tour you take so it is hard to miss.

I love to walk along this amazing street. As the avenue is so broad and there is so much to see I feel free and easy when I am there. Take your time to walk along by daytime and in the night.
