I absolutely love Bristol, RI. A very quaint deepwater seaport named after Bristol, England. Bristol has the oldest continuously celebrated Independence Day festivities in the United States. Situated on a peninsula, with Narragansett Bay on its west and Mount Hope Bay on its east, the views are spectacular and the beaches gorgeous. .Hope Street is dotted with shops, restaurants and...

Bristol gives the visitor a taste of history, of quiet streets and lovely seashore walks. The people are friendly and the pace of life is more relaxed than in Providence. It's worth stopping and staying a while.

I love walking along Hope Street and visiting the shops and restaurants and cafes. Everyone is very friendly in town and I always want to stay longer than I can. Parking is also free - nice!

This town is amazing. Quiet. Everything is perfect. It's too weird. I didn't think towns like this existed anymore. Downtown was so cool. Excellent shops. The boardwalk was really nice. Got some amazing pictures. We will never forget this town. I would highly recommend visiting. You won't regret it,

While Hope Street has nice businesses, homes, library etc., I can only really speak to it as a July 4th destination. This is THE place to view the oldest July 4th parade. The parade is still relatively fresh by State Street. Get here at 4AM to stake out a spot - seriously. There isn't much left by 6AM, and there... More

We were visiting and took our kids to the parade. We rode into town from Warren on the Bike path so we did not have to deal with parking, etc. Our whole family enjoyed the parade! We especially loved the red, white and blue lines in the street! So patriotic!

Started the walking tour at the Visitor Center on Hope Street. Many of the buildings have plaques with the date(s) of construction and the original owners.

Bristol has a beautiful and charming downtown area, Hope Street being the main road through it. The architecture and pride-filled homes are wonderful, there are many great restaurants and shops in this easily-walkable area, and the harbor is only a block away. And the Fourth of July parade down Hope Street is like no other!

My husband and I had to move to Texas to pursue higher education and since this move we have been craving some nostalgic Americana we grew up with. Walking down Hope Street was exactly what I needed. It was quaint, adorable, and peaceful. There was plenty of street parking for us and the entire stretch can easily be explored and... More
