Bristol is a quiet and charming New England waterfront town that has always been linked to the sea with a rich nautical history. The town is perhaps most familiar to yachting enthusiasts as the home of the famous Herreshoff Manufacturing Company. Led by designer Nat Herreshoff – the “wizard of Bristol” - they built some of the most advanced yachts in the world from the 1870’s to the 1930’s, including several winners of the America’s Cup. Bristol is also patriotic at heart, with a red, white and blue stripe running down Main Street that marks the route of their famous Independence Day parade, started 1785, that is the longest running continuous parade in the nation. A walk through town reveals numerous well-kept colonial era homes, eclectic shops, and delectable restaurants along the serene, tree-lined streets. Major highlights include the America’s Cup Hall of Fame, the Herreshoff Museum and the Bristol bike path that runs for many miles with great views. The large natural harbor is home to several marinas , with several notable boat builders and marine services based in town.

Unfortuntaley we decided not to proceed with publishing the guide book this year due to COVID19.  Normally we go to print with the book mid-May and COVID was in full force by then.  We continue to work on our website to keep it updated and we look forward to a better 2021! 

Thank you!
