As a tourist you won't miss Avenida 9 de Julio. It is certainly worth crossing it just to say you have crossed the widest road in the world.
I did not know that the avenue was one of the biggest in the world! I just remember trying to cross the street and thinking "My.. this avenue is huge!" The avenue reminded me a bit of New York City. However, the huge obelisk sets it apart from NYC. There is lots to do in the area so put on... More
The avenue is one of the widest in the world and is named after the date of independence of Argentina. It was newly renovated when I went, and there are now bus stops in the middle of the Avenue. You will definitely pass it when walking in the city!

Crossing the widest avenue in the world (its name honours Argentina's Independence Day, July 9, 1816) can be like crossing a mighty river where instead of water flowing by, it’s the ebb and flow never-ending traffic across many lanes – not for the faint hearted!
