South Street is always bustling with shoppers, students, and nightlife. The famous South Street stretch from Broad Street to the waterfront is a high-traffic area for tourists and locals alike. This quirky street features chain restaurants, art supply stores, Brauhaus Schmitz beer hall, sex shops, tattoo parlors, and an occult store. Take a stroll through Philadelphia's Magic Gardens, paved with mosaics of found glass, metal, and mirrors. Grab a slice of pizza at the recently-renovated Lorenzo's or snag one of Jim's Steaks, a South Street favorite. For a fun night out, head to Tattooed Mom's bar and sit upstairs in one of the bumper cars.
