Tucked away on a peninsula in beautiful Narragansett Bay, Bristol is a charming seaside town offering a wonderful quality of life at a relaxed pace. Surrounded by 15 miles of shoreline, this area has a reputation for having one of the best coastlines for sailing enthusiasts. Bristol is also known as one of the most patriotic towns in the United States, right down to its red, white, and blue traffic lines down the middle of Main Street. It hosts the annual Bristol Fourth of July Parade, which is the oldest, continuous Fourth of July celebration in the nation. Bristol’s geography, as a peninsula between Narragansett Bay and Mount Hope Bay, makes the climate more moderate than most New England communities; warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
