Buchanan Street from the Opera House to the River Clyde is a bustling shopping area also home to lots f street entertainment. Good place to sit and people watch and tak in all the sights and sounds. Further down you can continue on Argyle Street which offers more shopping venues.

“the most happening place in scotland.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

the atmosphere of festivity on weekends in the street. one could just sit and have fun watching the activities i.e. musicians ,jugglers, magicians entertaining the people on street. Bars and Pubs are pulsating with life.
What I did not like was some people getting drunk and not able to hold themselves.

“Great pedestrian High Street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Glasgow's main High Street (as opposed to its poor cousin Sauchiehall) is an extravaganza of high end shops with nice shopping malls on each end. It is located close to both Queen Street and Central Railway Stations and there are two subway stations along the street. After fighting the crowds shopping in London, it's a breath of fresh air to shop in relative peace and quiet. Too bad London can't copy it!
