“Stick to the historical sightseeing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

I don't see any reason to go here. Stick to the historical sightseeing, especially if you have limited time to spend in Philly. I'm sure that you have similar streets with similar stores close to where you live, so you needn't go here.

“Overrated as a Street”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

This is more like a glorified alley. Barely two lanes. Always crowded. Parking is a mess. Bike lanes and bus lanes are a joke. This is a street that city planners forgot or couldn't do anything with.

“Shopping Street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

I visit the city twice each month and enjoy window shopping along Walnut Street. Many fine stores located within walking distance to many of Philadelphia's historical sights.

“Take a walk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

For food, shopping or just hanging out in Rittenhouse Square - what a great spot in the city. There's nothing like a walk through Anthropologie - the store on the corner of Rittenhouse Square - incredibly creative decor. All kinds of good eateries around the square and along this street. Check out Parc - think you're in France?? :)
