The Champs-Elysees in Paris is the most famous French street, and also the most filled with tourists. The street is about 230 feet wide and stretches more than a mile. It is most beautiful during the holidays when it is lit up with thousands of lights and decorations.

 

Fondamenta San Mauro in Burano can be photographed from every angle and doesn’t have a bad side. The neighboring streets are popping with colors. The canals are filled with small fishing boats for travelers to admire the brightly colored facades. The streets are sure to delight your senses.

Lombard Street in San Francisco, Calif., specifically the stretch between Hyde and Leavenworth, is well-known for its tight zigzags. The street appeared in many Hollywood films. You’ll feel like you’re in a video game as you drive down.

 

The Malecon in Havana is an iconic symbol. American cars pass by children delightfully waiting for the next powerful wave to wash over the street.

Portobello Road in London is the main street of the charming Notting Hill neighborhood, known for its elegant Victorian houses. Every Saturday, the street is home to a famous antique market, which constantly attracts curious shoppers.

 

Trinity Park in Oak Bluffs can be found on the peaceful island of Martha’s Vineyard. Trinity Park runs through a small village of cottages that resemble real-life gingerbread houses — a surreal scene almost out of a movie.

 

The Agora in Molyvos, on the Greek island of Lesvos, is a quaint cobbled road under a canopy of purple wisteria. The street can be used to reach the Byzantine castle that overlooks the city.

Riva Del Ferro in Venice borders the Grand Canal. Rialto Bridge, the famous architectural marvel, can be seen from the street. Passersby can enjoy the beautiful view of houses along the water and the water taxis weaving in between gondolas, creating a picturesque scene.

The streets of Chefchaouen, Morocco, are famous for their different shades of blue. The city was once used as a fortress for exiles from Spain and over centuries many Jewish people moved to the small city bringing with them the ancient belief blue dye would remind people of God’s power. For the most vivid experience, stroll down Al Hassan Onsar, Rue Outiwi and the small stairs leading up and down Rue Bin Souaki.

 

For two to three weeks each spring, there is a magical tunnel created by trees that line Cherry Blossom Avenue in Bonn, Germany.

Giving Subscription Services as Gifts

Giving gifts is hard. The task grows when you need to manage the gift giving festivities of the holiday season. For something a little out of the ordinary, but that shows you still know your charge, consider giving a subscription service.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
