A very cool street. To think that some of our founding fathers probably walked on the same stones. Amazing. And thank you top the residents who did all the restoration.

Really worth taking a look at. These historical homes are amazing to view. Wasn't crowded at all when I went which was great. Some other landmarks in the area as well such as the Betsy Ross House so you can certainly find other things in the area to fill out your trip.

It made me want to buy a century+ old house on this tiny road. Oldest alley in Philly. Definitely worth checking out! Very quaint.

Great sights, cool curators, and an adorable local alley cat greets many of the visitors. Big downside is a ton of construction by the West entrance.

I'm posting a bit much because this area is a gem and I had to make up an itinerary after not finding a similar resource. We had a great trip after parking at 2nd/Lombard. We walked N through the Shambles, picking up St. Peter's Way until it's terminus near Zahav (100% legit!). Check out the Physick House, and walk up to Elfreth's Alley (oldest occupied city street in USA 1702, Old Oraibi in Az is oldest (far older, >~1100 inhabited settlement/non-street), the harbor (over viaduct on the east end of Walnut). Parking garage's seem to run ~$20 for 3 hours, we luckily took 1st spot we saw, paying ~$5. Parking around Society Hill is not a good bet, at least not on Mother's Day ha.

Elfreths Alley is very cool! Well kept, old vintage Philly "road". Homes are neat and tidy and the old ambiance is preserved well.

A piece of the colonial era in modern Philadelphia. A must see for every tourist. At the alley inside the alley, look for the lady who sells cookies.

Rather short. I wish I could keep walking on and on. Instead I just walked real slow.
