This is a cute, quaint street that is interesting to see and explore. It’s a very cute area and is super close to Betsy Ross’s house!

We didn’t have much time as we were only there for a few minutes with the tour group. It was really cool though. Seeing the old style houses with the cobblestone, pretty neat. I would definitely recommend stopping by if you can.
