Bristol, a town of about 23,000 people, is located between Newport (look for upcoming posts!) and the state capitol, Providence.

We were able to spend time getting to know this beautiful town that separates Narragansett Bay and Mount Hope Bay. Here are some of our favorite spots: (and I did fact check to make sure information is up to date as of June 2017)
