This *the* street for art and nightlife. Enjoy the magic gardens of Philadelphia, the street art and walk all the way to Penn Landing. For the art lovers there is a lot to see, everywhere!

Nice place but make sure your going somewhere they have a bathroom. Because they frown on you have to go. Other that had fun lots to see & do. Use Park Wiz for parking or go after 6pm on the weekend it’s cheaper.

South St was the first we encountered in Philly, as we just got off the I-95 from DC heading to Jim's Steaks. Luckily, we found a parking place, so after dinner decided to explore the area.
It's a nice neighborhood, with old British style brick small houses, no high rises. Plenty of bars, restaurants and food options. The area felt safe, but we stick to the main street which was well lit, with only few turns into side streets.

This was once a pretty good bohemian experience, but that was some time ago. It is still a neighborhood jammed with shops, restaurants, bars etc. and the crowds make it a fairly safe venue. The crowds also make it crowded and busy and the parking and driving at times can be next to impossible. Still. like many other Philly neighborhoods, this is worth a trip.

Lots of shops and restaurants in this area. Good for exploring but not very many true tourist destinations in this area.
