Shopping on South Main Street

South Main Street sits at the base of Providence’s College Hill, lined with funky shops, restaurants, the Cable Car Cinema and the RISD Museum. The quaint neighborhood – coined “SoMa” by the residing neighborhood association – is an example of Rhode Island's diversity; a collection of students, corporate execs and visitors. Check out two of SoMa’s charming stores, Shoppe Pioneer and Marc Allen Fine Clothiers, and get a feel for all that little South Main Street has to offer.
