Home of the oldest Fourth of July Parade in the United States, Bristol is noteworthy for historic Bristol Harbor, delightful Colonial inns and bed & breakfasts, and miles of old stone fences. The 14-mile East Bay Bike Path which runs from Bristol to Providence offers an unparalleled view of Narragansett Bay to cyclists, walkers, joggers and rollerbladers. Blithewold Mansion & Gardens is a 33-acre waterfront estate boasting a 45-room manor house and some of the most beautiful gardens in the eastern United States.
Areas of interest in Bristol include:
Downtown Bristol provides residents a compliment of old and new with historic homes nestled amongst a beautiful historic library and post office, wonderful gastro eateries, boutiques, galleries and antique stores along tree lined streets.
Located on a peninsula off jutting out into Narragansett Bay and Bristol Harbor, Poppasqaush Point offers estate setting with large estate homes and sites with fabulous water views. This private enclave has attracted families (and celebrities) for generations. This peninsula shares the property with Colt State Park, one of the "gems" of Rhode Island's park system with over 464 acres of groomed fruit trees, flowering bushes and manicured lawns.
Once housing the industrial age Mamquit Mill and Premier Thread Mill, these repurposed buildings and site is now home to 80 residences offering residents easy access to all downtown has to offer and a private deeded slip marina.
