I am surprised nobody from Boston has mentioned Hanover Street in Boston's famed North End so I will give it an honorable mention from my days in Cambridge and visiting the city.

In kansas city, main st. is a place with lots of stuff to do around it. In the metro, busy streets like shawnee mission parkway, and metcalf sometimes have different license plates. W. 47th street (emanuel cleaver II blvd.) is the main street that goes through the plaza so that has different license plates, is very busy, and is a place to hang out and shop.

It depends on what part of the city you are in. Each neighborhood has its own "most popular" street.

Beacon Hill - Charles Street
North End - Hanover Street and Salem Street
West End - Cambridge Street
Downtown - State Street, Tremont Street, and Washington Street
Back Bay - Boylston Street and Newbury Street
South End - Columbus Ave
Kenmore - Yawkey Way, Lansdowne Street, and Commonwealth Ave
Longwood - Brookline Ave

In my hometown of Carrier Mills, it's Mill Street, Washington St. RT45 and East End Street.

Main Street used to get tons of traffic before they tore down all of our downtown, and Walnut street is where all the skanky people live lol.
