Philly’s South Street

South Street is a quirky and famous street in Philadelphia. It has an arty vibe with some street art galleries, comic book stores, vinyl shops, vintage and boutique clothing, bars and restaurants. But it also has a sleazy undertone, with some weird fetish shops. It’s a fun place to hang out at for an afternoon.

I recommend browsing in the shops and eating a ‘Philly cheese steak’ at Jim’s Steaks (it is a sandwich loaded with meat, cheese wizz and peppers).

There is even a website for South Street which lists most of the bars, restaurants and shops.
