Yeah, I've read that. And that's why it's not allowed here and I'll either delete/transform your post or you properly credit the sources. Thank you.

With all due respect, @gabrielbabb, coudn't you try resizing the photos to a more suitable and generic size? I mean, those photos are cool (not that all of them make justice to the beauty of the avenue so whatever) but it's kind of hard to enjoy all of them when the sizes are just a mess! Please

From those I visited, Rambla had the best athmosphere, while the Champs-Elysees was the most impressive. These two avenues are my favourites.

As far as I have seen the best for me are 5th Avenue, Chaps - Elysees, and Paseo de la Reforma, also one from Tokyo I don't remember its name, some of them look beautiful but kind of messy, or too dark, mainstream...

I can't choose! D:

I love champs Elysees for its (obviously) french architecture, monuments, restaurants, history, a great view of Paris de la Defense and that it has some trees.

Paseo de la Reforma has skyscrapers, and old architecture combined, shops, plenty of activities, bike path, monuments, hotels, mansions, history, ecologic transportation, concerts, celebrations, parades, expositions, a forest and it is more arborised than any of the others.


La Gran Via and 8 de Julio look similar in architecture to Paris but the buildings look like old (without maintenance) and dirty a bit messy.

I love 5th avenue for its colors, shops, skyscrapers and life, but it has no trees!

The Tokyo street is just as 5th avenue but everything's always clean.

With some European streets I feel kind of uncomfortable, they are really pretty but sometimes they look like cold places not for the weather but is something like if it was a bad day. :/ But I love the night illuminations.

Lots of great avenues. Reforma is impressive from above, but not so much at street level. The Champs Elysees takes the cake for me.

There are competitions for the beautifullest avenue in my area.
There do they look how clean it is and how much green there is.

I'm gonna break rank here and nominate another nice one in Barcelona, La Rambla de Catalunya. It's a magnificent, yet pedestrianised and wooded avenue running parallel to Passeig de Gracia, flanked by some beautiful-yet-unknown architecture. Too bad it's hard to find pictures that do it justice!
