For Las Vegas locals, it’s a no brainer that the Las Vegas Strip is world-famous. But it’s also the most famous street in our backyard. The one locals avoid when there is a big event in town. The street we know will be flooded with tourists. It’s on the top of our minds because it’s always in our sight.
But other cities in the world have their own famous streets. And when it comes to the ones known worldwide, turns out our little Las Vegas Strip isn’t so famous. Granted, people know about it. But it’s not on the top of many lists of the world’s most famous streets. And it’s not on the top of many lists of streets people just have to visit on their next vacation.
If you’re a Las Vegas Strip loyal, you might be flabbergasted right now. There are other streets people want to see MORE than ours? Rude. We have world-famous chef restaurants. Casinos and strip clubs. Fremont and Downtown. The Bellagio Fountains and the High Roller. And soon, Formula 1 Racing. What more could people want?
Surprisingly, some of the more famous streets don’t have all that hoopla. Some do, for sure. But others are simply famous for one or two reasons. Or just because of a single event it’s known for. And in some cases, they’ve just been around longer.
There are probably other streets not on this list that people are just as surprised about. Santa Monica Boulevard in California. The Autobahn in Germany. Wall Street and Fifth Avenue in New York. The Royal Mile in Scotland. With so many famous streets in the world, it’s hard to include them all in a small list. But the numbers speak for themselves.
Readers Digest, Traveller365 and more weighed in. These are the most famous streets people all over the world flock to. And the Las Vegas Strip, albeit famous and a local favorite, isn’t the top of the list. – Wendy Rush
