Bristol is a town in the historic county seat of Bristol County, Rhode Island, United States. Get some historical perspective at Ned's Point Lighthouse and Oak Grove Cemetery. Discover out-of-the-way places like Newport Car Museum and St. Anthony of Padua Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Bristol: New Bedford (New Bedford Whaling Museum & Rotch-Jones-Duff House and Garden Museum), Fogland Beach (in Tiverton) and Fairhaven (Fort Phoenix State Reservation & Unitarian Memorial Church). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Fall River Historical Society, see the interesting displays at Herreshoff Marine Museum and America's Cup Hall of Fame, sample the fine beverages at Running Brook Vineyard & Winery, and don't miss a visit to Hope Street.
