We took a long walk along Avenida George Washington which runs along the ocean front. There are a lot of casinos and high end hotels. Police and security guards helped us cross the busy street. Zebra Crossings are not respected.

I travel on George Washington Avenue to get to the casino. There is a lot of traffic during the day and early evenings. Much horn blowing.

I stayed at a hotel right on Avenida George Washington. Best decision. The street is lively and safe. There are restaurants, fun places to go, parks, cool street artwork, magnificent sea views, and friendly people along the entire street.
