Fun to see

Fun place to visit. The world's widest avenue, according to the Argentines. Lots of hotels and places to eat.

lights, cars, shops, bars, the rush hour, the center of the down town, easy going, but always take care of the pick pocketers, just in case. The main av. for go all across the capital and other areas of the great Buenos aires.

It is the largest street I have ever seen. I could not cross it all in one light. I should have attempted to run across but the lights change frequently enough that it does not cause much of a delay.

Great place to wander down the center walkway and view all what is going on. Its where you catch buses to all over the place. And taxis too that are very reasonably priced, in fact cheap! Another good point about this avenue is it's a great way to keep your bearings to know where you are. Lots of popular streets... More

What a marvelous avenue, I just love this street and all the restaurants and shops it has. There is much history on this street, it is named after Argentina's Independence Day, July 9, 1816. It is the widest street I have ever seen.

its really not as hectic as people say for centro. its really like any busy country that you will go too. But just be watchful of your bag when walking on this street. your backpack should stay infront of you not at your back like its suppose to be. prices in this area are reasonable and negotiable.

You should really avoid 9 de Julio during a weekday. There are many times where people are demonstrating (whatever comes to their minds) which will cut off traffic. I've enjoyed cruising along this area in a taxi very late at night where you can see it without being upset that you are late for something. I wouldn't walk through it... More

The heart of Buenos Aires' center. Considered as the world's largest avenue, it is filled with movement on all days of the week. You can take buses to several places here (Recoleta, Palermo, etc), and it is especially lively near the Obelisk. Make a sure you take a picture near the BA sign!

It's true that is just a big avenue, but Avenida 9 de Julio is Buenos Aires main avenue and the heart of the city. Many important landmarks are located within this avenue, aside from commerce, places to eat, etc, and it's always fascinating to see city life from this point of view.
