Bristol is a gem of a little New England town. Hope Street is the quintessential New England street with historic homes, shops, and restaurants.

Hope Street, the main road in Bristol, has a variety of shops and restaurants, with restaurants on many of the side streets and access to the waterfront. Nice place to spend a sunny afternoon in the spring, summer or fall.

Yes, off of Thames Street, but it is paid parking. Most other spots you have to have a tag for parking on certain streets, but we have many public parking spots available. On our 4th of July no parking on the parade route.
