Bristol, which claims to be the most patriotic town in America, may very well be so. The first 4th of July celebration was held there, in 1785! This fervor continues today in the three-week Celebration which culminates in the gala Parade on Independence Day which is watched by over 200,000 enthusiastic people.
Throughout Bristol's existance, sailing and shipbuilding have played an important role in life since the 17th century. This tradition continues today, with some of the best commercial and recreational boat manufacturers in the world located in Bristol. Bristol also is home to Herreshoff Marine Museum.
In the town of Bristol you can experience the lifestyle of a 1750 Rhode Islander, visit the mansion of a slave trader, see where America's Cup Race yachts were designed and built, wander a 400 acre historic saltwater farm, an oceanfront wildlife refuge, or one of Yankee Magazine's Best 5 Public Gardens in New England.
