Bourbon Street, New Orleans (Louisiana)

Known for its restaurants, bars and strip clubs, Bourbon Street occupies 13 blocks in New Orleans' legendary French Quarter. The facades of the buildings here are more reminiscent of Spain or France, but not the United States. During the day, Bourbon Street is the most ordinary street, and at night it turns into a center of entertainment and fun. The most popular festival in New Orleans, Mardi Gras, takes place just on Bourbon Street: the street is filled with participants in a bright procession almost to capacity, it is simply impossible to squeeze through the crowd.

Broadway, New York (New York)

Having heard the name of this street, almost anyone in the world will say where it is and remember theaters and musicals. However, few people know that Broadway is much more than just theaters and actors. Firstly, it is not one street; Broadway in New York consists of the same name avenues, streets and boulevards. The boulevard that crosses Manhattan is the most famous part of Broadway. It is there that all the central nodes of the American theater industry are concentrated. There are 40 professional theaters created specifically for the selection of Tony Award nominees. Only performances taking place in one of these theaters can be nominated for this award.

Every year, ten million people come to see this part of Hollywood Boulevard.

Another notable place on the boulevard is the Chinese Theatre.

The boulevard is also home to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, and the famous Hollywood sign is more visible from this street than from any other part of Los Angeles.
