College Hill

Recommended
This area's charming, tree-shaded streets, lined with architecture ranging from Colonial to Italianate, represents one of the most beautifully preserved historic districts in the nation. High on the hill sits Thayer Street-the shopping center of the university community-which brims with bookstores, coffee houses, shops and restaurants. This district is home to Brown University.
