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.

The street is how one would imagine and old New England fishing village Main Street. Stately old houses mixed with quaint little specialty shops and restaurants. Absolutely charming.

Bristol's claim to fame is they have the longest continuous running 4th of July celebration in the USA starting c 1777. Bristol is a peninsula and has about 22,000 permanent residence. It is a typical, small seaport town and fun place to visit.

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.
