South Philadelphia (13th Street btw Tasker and Morris)
See the Miracle on 34th Street…on 13th StreetEasily visible from the North Pole, the lights of South Philadelphia’s “miracle on 13th street” are a holiday display not to be missed. No advertisements, no brand names hawking discounted goods, just lights, and lots of them. The block-long, homegrown display of Christmas lights, blow up Santas, mechanized reindeer, sleds and oh-so-much cheer is consistently listed by national media as one of the top spots in the country to see Christmas displays. The place is simply littered with lights.
Tip: After the light display, stop in for a drink or a hearty Italian meal at Victor Cafe on 13th and Dickinson, where a multi-talented waitstaff serenades you with arias and operatic favorites. It’s south Philly at its finest.
