“Step back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

Hope St. is more like a village than a town. You can get pretty much anything you're looking for from great food, gift and antique shops to just finding a street side cafe and enjoy watching the world go buy. This is like going on a mini vacation without leaving town. There's always something new going up and even the old standards keep improving with the times.

“Everything all on one street”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2011

Hope Street is one of the two main roads into and out of Bristol. This is the more attractive and "touristy" of the two. Everything you need is on this street: away from the downtown area of Bristol are a lot of homes, a supermarket and shopping plaza, banks, Rockwell School, and the medical center. When you hit Chestnut St heading south, the lines on the street turn into patriotic red, white, and blue lines to denote the parade route for the famous 4th of July parade. When you enter the downtown area, it is very typical of an old fashioned New England town: many restaurants, gift shops, the post office, library, Colt and Andrews schools, and some inns, as well as Linden Place. Go a little further and you will reach Blithewold and Roger Williams University.

Very pretty road, great for walking around, especially during the 4th of July and the holiday season, when downtown is decorated to its fullest! Just beware of the traffic, and the many pedestrians, especially since this street is RIPTA's main bus route for Bristol.
