Are you craving some retail therapy? Well, we have good news! There are plenty of places to treat yourself to a day of shopping in Philly. Grab your besties and check out our top 5 neighborhoods, designed for you to shop ’til you drop!
Philly’s Historic District, a.k.a Old City, brings you great vibes and even better indie boutiques. Not to mention, there are so many local artists and designers with galleries to showcase their killer work. Old City is also one of the few Philly neighborhoods to participate in “First Fridays,” where some of these galleries and shops stay open late on the first Friday of the month. They’ll host events with live music, food, special sales, and more! Head to 2nd and 3rd St, from Race to Market, where all the shopping magic happens!
Northern Liberties is just north of Old City, so why not head there next? The heart of the shopping scene in NoLibs is along 2nd St between Germantown Avenue and Spring Garden Street. You’ll find antique shops, charming boutiques, cafes, gift shops, and more as you explore one of the best neighborhoods for shopping that Philly has to offer. Be sure to check out Art Star, a popular gallery-like store with everything from home decor to handmade clothing, while you’re there. Get ready to fulfill your every shopping desire!

South Street has the best combination of fun gift shops, used book stores, vintage clothing shops, and eccentric music stores. It’s full of one-of-a-small businesses with unique items. The neighborhood is also known for its art galleries, tattoo parlors, and the famous Fabric Row; home of the seamstresses, tailors, and upholstery shops. Plus, we have to mention the many food options (Tattoed Mom, MilkBoy, and Jim’s Steaks are some of our faves!). You might spend a little too much money on this shopping spree, but at least you won’t go hungry!
