"Great Shopping and Best Burrito!"

Walnut Street is a great place for those who love to shop! Located between Broad and 20th, there are tons of stores and boutiques. However, my favorite area on Walnut would have to be on 7th street where El Fuego is located. It’s a burrito joint that, in my opinion, is the BEST in the city!

"Worth it for the shopping"

If you're in town for shopping, head to Walnut. Just about everything you could ever want to buy is on offer here (though usually at a bit of a cost!) along with plenty of places to relax, eat, drink, and just spend time with friends (or shopping partners). For the historically minded, there's also Rittenhouse Square, a park planned by none other than William Penn himself.

"Great shopping and dining"

Walnut Street in University city runs through the University of Pennsylvania campus. The street is lined with a number of university buildings and a number of places to shop. These shops include book stores, clothing stores, running shoes, and a card and gift store. There are also a few good restaurants to get a bite to eat after your shopping spree, including one that serves nothing but cereal! Another place for a cheap and tasty lunch are the food trucks. These trucks serve many varieties of food and are a university city staple.

"Great shopping and dining"

I had the best shopping experience at Walnut street. There were many stores and food joints giving the best of everything, from clothing and accessories to tasty gourmet meals. Snack joints are also very popular like the Mc Donalds situated here. You need heavy wallets if you want to shop on this street. It has some of the expensive fashion and electronic outlets. there is also a theater called the walnut street theater situated on this street.
