Last Stop: Hollywood Blvd!

If you were to take a tour of all the famous streets in the United States, you would find yourself jetting all over the country. There are plenty of famous streets that tourists flock to in this country, no matter what kind of vacation they are looking for.

St. Charles Ave Streetcar

A Streetcar Named Desire

New Orleans is full of infamous streets. St. Charles Avenue is home to the most famous vintage streetcar around, in addition to jaw dropping mansions. The Garden District also includes Magazine Street. Don’t miss out on Royal, which includes unique antique shops and art galleries. Of course there is also Bourbon Street, the most notorious street in the city for partying.

Lombard Street

Make sure your brakes are good before going down this street!

San Francisco’s Lombard Street is one of the most crooked streets in the world, featuring eight hairpin turns. This street runs from the Presidio to a neighborhood called Cow Hollow, but the crooked section is just one-fourth of a mile long.
