4. Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, California  

From the moment Julia Roberts grabbed her bags and went on an iconic shopping spree in Pretty Woman, every woman wanted a chance to go shopping on Rodeo Drive.  

Other movies that have made Rodeo Drive famous worldwide include Clueless and Beverly Hills Cop.  

Rodeo Drive covers three blocks and is around 2 miles long. It is known for having an incredible collection of ultra-high-end designer and boutique shops.  

Some of the most famous shops and attractions on the Drive include Gucci, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, and the House of Bijan, which is one of the most expensive stores in the world.

You can see the Beverly Wilshire Hotel (also of Pretty Woman fame) and visit the Anderton Court structure which was designed by iconic architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

3. Bourbon Street, New Orleans, Louisiana  

The very name Bourbon Street conjures a picture of parties, music, and boozy beverages. Bourbon Street is the epicenter of party town New Orleans.  

It doesn’t matter what time of year you visit you’ll find a street that is lit with neon lights, there’s always music playing, and the whole area is decorated with beads and other party decorations.  

Though Bourbon Street really comes alive at night it also has a great party atmosphere during the day. It’s not quite as crazy as at night, and some travelers feel safer visiting this popular attraction during daylight hours.  

Some of the most iconic activities to enjoy on Bourbon Street include visiting countless bars and restaurants, trying your hand at karaoke in the Cat’s Meow karaoke bar, and watching live jazz in Maison Bourbon. This is the oldest jazz club on Bourbon Street.  

If you like a boozy beverage, then try a hand grenade. This is claimed to be the most powerful drink in New Orleans!

These 5 are indeed a good selection for the 5 Most Iconic Streets in America. Number 1 on the list Ocean Drive is the same 1.3 miles in length as The “Charm’tastic Mile” in Baltimore. The Magnificent Mile in Chicago is the same 13-blocks in length as Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Bourbon Street also made the Top 5 list.
