'Rua da Praia' is not only a street, it is a destination. You may not realize the street pavement itself, but it is a daily commute to millions. Come for the scenery around, building and the frenziedly!

I lucked out by renting an AirBNB apartmend on dos Andradas on my first visit to Porto Alegre. It is a mainly (not exclusively) pedestrian shopping street with tones of banks, resaurants, shops and street vendors. Not to be missed

It's one of the main veins of POA. If you work in downtown POA you certainly walk this street to go out for lunch, go to the bank, go shopping... It's a promenade, no cars allowed.

Rua da Praia is a traditional commerce area of Porto Alegre. You can find lots of stores on this street. It is a place to walk down town and sight see Porto Alegre

It used to be the "point" of Porto Alegre where boys and girls walk and flirt. Today is not as nice as it was before and there is serious concerns about safety day and night.

Locals in a hurry and relaxed tourists find each other strolling by that gourgeous old urban pass.
