As a young single person in Philadelphia, you’re either hanging out in one of two spots:
Old City – There isn’t much room for sight-seeing in this area. It’s pretty much for people looking to have good time, barhopping, club going, and booty shaking, all within a 4 block radius. Old City is bigger than 4 blocks but the more frequented bars, clubs, and lounges are within a stone’s throw of each other. To name a few: Bleu Martini, Cafe Spice, Cuba Libre, and The Continental. (And by day you can see boring stuff like museums and Betsy Ross’s House cause it’s kinda historic too)
South Street – This is where Philly seems to be racially divided cause somehow, this is where ALL the young black kids hang out. Strolling along South Street, you will come across many funky (and not so funky – like the Gap) stores, tattoo/piercing spots, restaurants and bars. It’s really an area for a younger more showing off crowd. Put on your best duds and just walk.
*There is more to Philly than these two areas – it is a big college town afterall – but these are the most popular.
