One of the best ways to explore Abu Dhabi is to take a drive or a stroll along the park-lined Corniche. As you travel the coastal boulevard, you'll come across parks with picnic areas, walkways, and bicycle paths. It's a great way to get to know the city from the water's edge, with the gleaming city skyline on one side and the sparkling Gulf on the other. Abu Dhabi Corniche often plays host to open-air bazaars, art exhibitions, and festive events like the musical one Womad Festival.
