Though it acts as the northern border to South Philadelphia and the southern border to Center City, South Street is a neighborhood itself because of its mix of things to do. South Street is one of Philadelphia's most popular tourist attractions due to its variety of bohemian and alternative bars, restaurants, and shops. Previously Cedar Street, it was the southern border of the entire city of Philadelphia before the annexation of several townships. Its central location puts you in the middle of all the exciting things the city has to offer, crossing through several neighborhoods and giving you easy access to some of Philadelphia's most popular spots. 

You'll find several pet-friendly spots along South Street.Doggie Style Pets South is housed here and on the western end of South Street sits Accent On Animals and Pet Snobs Boutique, two local supplies shops. There are also several restaurants with outdoor seating if you're looking for a bite to eat.

Most of South Street is one-way with parallel parking on both sides, so you're almost protected from passing cars. It does get a little busier as you head toward the river and to University City where the road turns into a two-way and includes bike lanes. South Street offers an easy walk through downtown Philadelphia. It's very flat and the only real incline you'll find is when the street crosses over the Schuylkill River. 

The street spans about three miles, so it will take you about an hour to walk the entirety of South Street at a normal pace. South Street is perfect for older dogs who enjoy slow strolls as well as for those who love people watching. There are benches along the sidewalks if you want to stop for a rest. While there aren't a lot of grassy areas along the way, there are a few parks scattered around the area.

The largest park right on South Street is Penn Park, a large recreation area near University Park featuring several athletic facilities and plenty of room to sit on the grass and enjoy scenic city views. You can also find easy access to Schuylkill River Park by taking the boardwalk that intersects South Street at the Schuylkill River Bridge. You can enjoy the views from the boardwalk or head all the way to the park where you can let Fido free at the spacious dog run. 

Heading west down South Street, you'll find a triangular courtyard with shaded tables around a pretty fountain. South Street is also home to the Philadelphia Magic Gardens, a small outdoor space featuring an array of mosaic art. If you want to give your pet some freedom, the nearby Seger Park also offers a spacious off-leash area for dogs to enjoy.
