Streets are not only passageways but they are also works of art that hold great history. Whenever you visit a place, take time to appreciate some of them. Here are the world's most beautiful streets that should be on every traveler's bucket list.

Ocean Drive, Miami. This street represents the beauty of beach life. Ocean Drive is lined with neon and pastel-colored hotels and sidewalk cafes. It's not only the view that you'll enjoy but also the activities in Lummus Park that include volleyball, rollerblading and outdoor workouts. It's a perfect location for a walk while enjoying the sun's warmth and the sea's fresh air.

Times Square, New York. The urban life is reflected in this buzzing street with theaters, cinemas and giant billboards in every corner. This 13-mile long street is popular for New Year countdowns where the ball drops from the Times building's roof.

Champs-Elysees, Paris. According to A Paris Guide, the monuments and history of the avenue makes it one of the most famous streets in the world. It is worth a stroll with its huge sidewalks surrounded by lush green trees and wonderful facade of the stylish buildings. This street is connected to the Tuilerie Garden where most people gather, relax, and appreciate nature. For those interested in art, it is also near two museums, The Jeu de Paume and Orangerie.

Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco. This street is popularized by the collection of 48,000 Edwardian and Victorian inspired houses that are painted in bright colors. This is also famed as the origin of the hippie culture. Aside from that, San Francisco has a zigzag road that is considered the world's most crooked street, Lombard.

Via Dolorosa, Jerusalem. According to Telegraph, this historical street is said to be the path Jesus took on the way to his crucifixion. It is busy during the Easter season with its group pilgrimages, where individuals perform the Stations of the Cross while carrying heavy wooden crosses.

The world has plenty of beautiful streets that are worth visiting. They don't only offer picturesque views--they also provide visitors a peek at a colorful culture and history.
