The experts at put together a list called The 71 Most Beautiful Streets in the World, and Chicago, Illinois' legendary Lake Shore Drive lands at number 40 on the list, and is the 7th highest ranking street from the USA on the list. The cities that have more beautiful streets in the US according to the list are Brooklyn (NYC), 2 different streets in San Francisco (the Full House Street and the winding road), Boston, Telluride (Colorado, beautiful little main street with Mountains in the background), and Miami.

What does the Architectural Digest have to say about Chicago's Lake Shore Drive? On the site, they say "With the towering skyline on one side and the shore of Lake Michigan on the other, DuSable Lake Shore Drive is the perfect way to take in the Windy City. Grant Park, Museum Campus, and Soldier Field are set along the expressway and the 18-mile Lakefront Trail runs parallel to the busy street for those who wish to explore on foot."  To see the pictures of the most beautiful streets in the world and the complete list, click here!

Did they get it right?

It would have been a disaster if the list didn't include Windy City. Personally, we know I am biased, but I would rank Lake Shore Drive above ANY street in the USA as far as beauty goes. I do like that they included Telluride, Colorado, if you haven't seen how beautiful that town is look it up and you'll want to plan a trip there ASAP!
