Chestnut Street is known as one of Philadelphia's most historic streets and a short walk down it will prove it. It was the site of important meetings during the 18th and 19th centuries and is the address for Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. Today, it's a bustling roadway in the heart of Philadelphia, surrounded by old buildings that house shops, restaurants, museums, and more. You can choose to spend your walk on Chestnut Street admiring some of Philadelphia's history or you can do some window shopping that your pup will enjoy too! 

There are several pet stores along Chestnut Street, including a pet supply store near the eastern end and K9 Health & Supplies all the way at the western end. Rittenhouse Square Pet Supply sits a few blocks below Chestnut Street. In case of emergency, the Center City Veterinary Hospital and O'Neal Animal Hospital are at opposite ends of the street.

Though Chestnut Street is mainly flat with a few small inclines along the way, it does span more than five miles. If you plan on walking the whole street, wear comfortable shoes and bring plenty of water for you and Fido! Starting at the western end of the street and walking east, you'll notice that Chestnut Street is surrounded mostly by residential homes and you don't see many businesses until it intersects South 49th Street. From there, Chestnut Street slowly evolves into a bustling city street with towering skyscrapers and many places to eat, shop, and explore. 

You'll find small patches of grass along your walk, but as this is one long city sidewalk, don't expect a lot of natural foliage. You'll be walking on concrete sidewalks along a busy, multi-lane, one-way road. Exercise caution because parts of Chestnut Street can become very crowded, especially near Independence Hall during high tourist seasons.

While there isn't a lot of small grassy areas along Chestnut Street, the road does cross through several Philadelphia neighborhoods and you'll find plenty of sprawling parks near wherever you are on Chestnut Street. At the eastern end of the city is Independence Hall, surrounded by gorgeous lawns with colorful trees where you can walk down brick pathways or have a seat in the shade. Washington Square is also near this area where you'll find memorials, a fountain, and shady areas to relax. Farther east at the end of Chestnut Street is I-95 Park, a small green area that sits on top of the highway. 

If you want to avoid tourists, there are many other parks to enjoy at the other end of Chestnut Street. You can easily access the Schuylkill Banks from Chestnut Street for a peaceful walk along the river. Near the University of Pennsylvania, you'll find Hill Square, a grassy area with several walking paths.
