Fun night life in Philly! It has tons of bars and restaurants! A lot of shopping stores too. We feel safe when we were walking down in South Street, because there were group of police men watching the crowd. It was fun! Great night out...More

Back when, I vaguely remember the clubs and late nights and all the 60's stars here. I drove down from the Bronx (NY) early in the morning of my 18th birthday!! It's still fun here but I definitely missed the old vibe

My wife and I took a stroll down south street. It was a nice night out with warm temps which made it a great night for people watching!

Haven't been to south street in many years, as it has gone through its lows. Seems like things are on the upswing with interesting shops, restaurants and bars. Still a little dodgy in areas. Yet potential for a great improvement. Saw tourists and locals which...More

Very cook place to shop, something for everyone. Great food places, very diverse. Would definitely go back again. Reminded me of the east village in Manhattan.

An after dinner walk down South Street to Penn's Landing.. Enjoy looking across the Delaware at the Battleship New Jersey.. She fired a lot of salvos back in the day to support us in the Nam 1969...

If you visit Philly, no trip is complete without a visit to South Street. Have a few drinks at the piano bar(can't remember the name) walk along the water front, shop at Tower Records.

This is an eventful strip with numerous options for food, drinks and even some unorthodox shopping! I actually went into my first legit sex store on this street and it was pretty cool. Nice philly cheese steak options and just an overall good experience :)

A long walk down and back,but art is everywhere. The alleys are full of mosaics, the walls are murals, the shops are colorful and interesting. The Magic Garden between 10 and 11th Streets is fantastic. Enjoy a cupcake at a bakery, a bubble tea, or...More

The South Street is not just a street, it's a promenade sight... There are many hotels near-by it. And all of them are rather good, and classy. I would prefer these among others: Alexander Inn, Morris House Hotel... More
