    Street art

    Looking for the museum of belles artes which was closed I passed by this park at Avenida Libertadores which was full of statues and sculptures, it was really an amazing walk which made me forget the fact that the museum was closed and that I went there for no reason.

    STREET ART

    All across the major pedestrian walkways, tourist areas and the odd side street are the Street Artists. Mainly students, they dress as anything form historical figures (like Evita Peron) to robots and angels. Some get downright strange. Unlike mainly cities across the world, they do not object if you take their photo without paying. They will put on a small show though if you toss in a few coins.

    Street Entertainers - Street Buskers

    Buenos Aires is alive with street culture. On almost any street or corner you can enjoy street entertainment in the form of buskers.

    On Florida Street the performances run 14 hours per day. We found after a week these entertainers to be somewhat repetitious, however if you are looking for a true Buenos Aires experience be sure to visit San Telmo on a Sunday. The place has an atmosphere you will not forget. The street comes alive with a variety of music and entertainers that I for one would pay money to see. Don’t forget you can do all of these sitting in the street sipping an excellent margarita.

    It is worth mentioning a similar vibe can be found at La Boca.

    Not really a place to shop (since prices are geared for tourist) but it is nice to walk and enjoy the view here.There are many street performers,tango shows and shops to browse thru.
    Busy during the day and not at night since shops close early around 7/8 pm.

    This street will also lead u to Galerio Pacifico, a nice shopping complex (interior is beautifully crafted).

    Tango in Florida street

    by alexpt Written Jan 26, 2005

    A very common scene in Florida Street: couples dancing tango. This pedestrian street is a nice place to walk, even in the night. There are many cheap stores, restaurants and snack-bars. You can see also many different street performers.

    Avenida Florida is a long stretch of street, a pedestrian boulivard with hundreds of stores and restaurants and lots of street performers. It is a definite must see activity.
