This avenue was very busy, you cross through many signals to reach the other side. It takes a lomg time to cross the intersection if you walk really fast you may make it without stopping.

This is a the widest street in Buenos Aires and a good place to walk to see different types of architecture. The Obelisk is located on the is street and worth a visit for good travel photos. Just pay attention to the people walking next to you as there are pickpockets walking in this tourist area.

Certainly has to be crossed or seen while there. This is a big, busy, touristy area ,but has many sights off the street.

A very wide tree lined street with so much traffic that it is not a place to linger for too long. The honking horns and many motorbikes make for a not too tranquil place. As for driving along it that is for those born to these streets.

While in BA you'll criss cross this avenue while moving around. Plenty of hotels, offices and restaurants along the way on both sides. Drivers here pay no attention to pedestrians, and cross walks are just a suggestion that cars should stop, so be careful when crossing. The light cycle is long enough to reach the middle/median area. Then wait to... More

This is really one of the widest boulevards I have ever seen. it can certainly compete with the Champs Elysee Boulevard in Paris. A must see on your list

But that's it! To be honest I wouldn't make a special trip here. My partner at the time was interested in this place. It's just a massive street with loads of lanes. The most fun part was crossing the road.
