    Up for a stroll?

    by acemj Written May 28, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Philly is a great city to take a stroll. Old City, Rittenhouse Square, South Street, Society Hill, Washington Square and many other areas are full of interesting shops and sights and you'll find locals strolling around all over the place.

    Here's a picture of my nephew and my sister in front of Philadelphia Java Company just off of South Street. This is a great are for a stroll and this coffee shop is really great, especially if you have a kid like my nephew. They have an area in the back with a couch and they're really kid-friendly. My nephew was having a great time rummaging through a big box of toys that they keep here while we enjoyed our lattes.

    Fondest memory: Philadelphia Java Company is located at 518 S. 4th Street just off of South Street. Their telephone number is 215-928-1811.

    Take a walk down South Street....

    Favorite thing: Take a walk down South Street. Yep, that's right the street made famous in a song telling you where all the hippies meet. This street is the most colorful, noisy and active area of the whole city. The street (between Front and 8th street) is lined with restaurants, bars and unusual shops.

  • South Street, below 8th. I...

    by danasanders Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: South Street, below 8th. I hung out here as a kid and it has changed (there's a McDonald's and a Starbucks) but the majority of shops are still on the edge of Boehmia. It is a great strip to shop on. And the people are great eye candy!

    Fondest memory: Tastykake! You've got to have one tom understand. Philly is a city of FOOD! Big portions and flavorful. If you're on a diet don't bother coming!
