Because Ushuaia rests on a steep hill, most businesses, traffic, and people seem to converge on the main street that lies at the bottom, Avenida San Martín. You will soon tire of walking up and down this busy thoroughfare, however, so it's worth making the effort to climb up and explore the city's other streets. The best way to get a feel for the landscape is to walk to the city park and up to the Punto Panorámico, a great lookout point, from where you get sweeping views of the city and the channel. The trail, which begins at the southwestern end of Avenida San Martín, is free. Construction is underway to improve the port and the coastal stretch, making it more pedestrian- and tourist-friendly.
