Visiting Thayer Street, one immediately knows that you are in a college town! The entire vibe is college! It's shops, restaurants, and, services, are geared to the upwardly mobile Brown crowd.
I especially enjoyed eating here, and, parousing through the Brown University book shop,( where I found terrific books and bought my new laptop), which sits on this street.
Nice and casually collegiate, go, you will enjoy it!

Off the beaten path but busy nonetheless, most enjoyable with many dining and shopping options. High energy district

Lots of shopping and places to eat. Nice quaint feel. I liked it, but a person can only shop so much on vacation. My suitcases do not have a whole lot of extra room to bring things home!

With an eclectic array of things to see and do Thayer St is fun. There are countless restaurants, bars, and retail stores of all shapes and sizes.... the only downfall is parking! It's hard to find so wear your walking shoes.

Once you find parking, it is a great place for an afternoon or evening stroll. Consignment, fashion, jewelry, shoes, etc. from here you can walk to RISD art museum, multiple art installations at Brown as well.
