Great weekend afternoon. South street is an awesome place to just go and relax on a casual weekend afternoon. Incredibly unique shops, wonderful food and an alternative atmosphere unparalleled by any other place in the city. You can make a whole day of shopping, eating and walking down this long strip of fun shops and restaurants.
Bustling artery between Center City and South Philly brings out the best and the worst of the young at heart..
A collection of shops, restaurants, bars, tattoo parlors, clubs, vagrants, tourists, locals, kids, adults and used gum stuck to the sidewalk; South Street is the place to cruise on any night of the week. There are enough chain stores and restaurants to placate the city-weary suburbanite adults, while there are enough odd-ball outfits to keep kids busy. There are clubs like Fluid, bars like Tattooed Mom and dining/spinning ventures such as Guru.
A cool place to visit. South Street has lots of fun things to do, and cool places to browse. I agree with MrGXX64...the parking gets ridiculous....I don't know if I could visit as often as MrG, but I definitely could spend several hours exploring all the cool stuff and watching all the different types of people who hang out on South Street.
a little of everything. What a cool street. People from all walks of life gather to shop, eat, drink, or take a stroll and enjoy all this top Philly destination has to offer. Definitely recommended!
Philly SOHO. Great Atmosphere, if you love the village in NYC then you'll love South Street.
PARTY. ONE OF THE MOST COLORFUL PLACES THAT I HAVE EVER BEEN TO.
whoslookingatwho?. people watching is the best part of the whole adventure to this short space of our world. in a few short blocks up and down in between wow. tyed dyed hippies and gothic freaks. diamonds and furs. small children and old men and woman strolling. all nations crowded together eating icecream or pizza. listening to the many street corner muscians, walk a block and see a mime, South Street is a carnival/festival everyday everynight. go on the weekends and really experience the feel of whos looking at who?
Not for the Faint. South Street is simply -"the place to be". You have great food, live venues (comedy clubs), unique shops (clothing and apparel) and more culture than one could ever imagine to be condensed into a handful of city blocks. I am a Philly native, but truly unbiased - I've been across the country and internationally. I've been to some beautiful places and you just can't duplicate the vibe or the culture...anywhere. If you love culture, diversity, the hustle & bustle of the city, entertainment, eccentric people, and extraordinary comforts -South Street will steal your heart!
south st. is differant place to checkout. i think south st. is one of safest and most fun places to hang out and shop in philly. you can walk from one side to the other and see many types of people that come to south st. it's like a differant place in a differant time. south st. might look weird for some that go there for the first time. but, once you go there. you will allways want to go back and have fun all over again. i go to south st. at least 4 times a month.and enjoy it every time i go .the only bad thing about south st. is parking . the meters are good for only 2 hr.s. parking garages are little expensive. but its worth the trip.
BS. No way. That is total BS. South Street is for tourists who think that is the place to go. It is just a bunch of weirdos now.
