I took my family for a stroll down Hope street, we stopped for ice cream and seafood. We enjoyed the old architecture of the houses and buildings dating back to the 1600.s. Even saw what looked like ginger bread houses along the way, similar to Martha's Vineyard.

I used to live near Hope St. It's a nice, safe place to go for a walk. There are little shops and restaurants. Definetly a good area to check out.

Interesting stores, restaurants and homes to tour or just admire. We enjoyed Linden Place Mansion - didn't tour any others.

Assortment of enticing small shops, restaurants, spas, nail and hair salons, bakeries, an historic mansion (Colt/DeWolf families), antiques, florists, art museum, and more! This delightful downtown basically runs on Hope Street (Route 114) from Constitution Street at one end, dwindling to a mixed block (residential/commercial) sort of ending at Franklin Street. Nearly bisecting this downtown is State Street which leads... More

My husband and I stopped here after a 2 hour ride on the East Providence Bike path. Tiny cafe and snacks were limited selections by mid-afternoon but everything was really delicious, especially the drinks. Cozy and homey.
