My favorite place in the country is Marine Drive, Mumbai. It is a 3.6 kilometers long promenade along the Netaji Subash Chandra Bose Road in Mumbai. It is a C-shaped six-lane road along the coast of a natural bay. Girgaon Chowpatty is to the northern tip of Marine Drive. And the adjacent road links Nariman Point to Babulnath and Malabar Hills.
Marine Drive is also famous as Queen’s Necklace as when it is viewed from a height, the street lights resemble a string of pearls in a necklace. It is the most calm place to visit either with your friends or family or even alone. If you want peace in your life, you may go there and sit for some time. The place is full of people roaming around, sitting, and even people come here for their evening walk. There are many restaurants also lined up near Marine Drive. The famous Oberoi Hotel is also located near Marine Drive.
There are many events that Marine Drive has hosted in the past few years. IAF Airshow was organized by Marine Drive in the year 2004. Mumbai Marathon was also started by Marine Drive in February 2004. This has been a practice since then. The Mumbai terror attacks took place in 1993, 2003, and 2008. Pakistani terrorists attacked the targets near this place, that is, the Taj Hotel.
If you are visiting this place during the night, you will find many people sitting near the rocks with their friends, having some street food. Many vendors are also present there to sell some famous Bhel Puri and all. You can find people having a walk with their dogs. It is a serene place where you can explore the peace within yourself. It is the perfect place for any mood. Just by sitting there, you can get relieved of almost all your tensions.
