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.
