“Hope Street is New England Small Town at its Best”
Review of Hope Street

Hope Street
Ranked #3 of 20 things to do in Bristol
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Hope Street is a comfortable and quaint as one could ever anticipate in a ideal New England Town. We enjoyed every shop, the people watching and particularly historic St. Michael's Church.

Hope Street in Bristol is a perfect little slice of classic New England. Bristol is a cool seaside town and Hope Street is the heart of it all. The famous 4th of July parade goes right down the street and it is painted with red, white, and blue stripes instead of the usual, boring yellow stripes. Bristol has a lot of cute shops to wander through or you can just spend your time relaxing along the water taking in the beautiful views.

Hope Street in Bristol, RI, has much to offer. From shopping in small shops carrying a wealth of priceless opportunities, to watching the oldest 4th of July Parade in America. There are restaurants and shops galore! The parade marches right down the middle of Hope Street. The Christmas Season offers the chance to see how New England celebrates that Holiday season!

Do you like to take a walk in a place that has curb appeal? Bristol is a wonderful seaside town with rich history. Stop and grab a cup of coffee or an ice cream cone and enjoy the scenery. There are shops, beautiful homes, and a wonderful view of the harbor. You can stay at the Bristol Harbor Inn, have breakfast at the Bee Hive and then take an afternoon walking tour. Contact Rogers Free Library or the visitors center located on Hope Street next to Paper Packaging and Panache. If you are a movie buff you may have known actor Anthony Quinn.....he was a resident in Bristol until his death. Richard Gere filmed a movie in Bristol called Hachiko, A Dog's Story a few years back. It's a great place to visit! Bristol is also a 20 minute ride to Newport, RI.
