Bristol Fourth of July Parade

Bristol, Rhode Island

Mt Hope Bridge photoSettled in 1631 on land purchased from the Wampanoag Indians, Bristol, Rhode Island is in many ways a quintessential New England town.

With a population of about 25,000, and with Roger Williams University as the single largest employer, it is most emphatically a college town as well, boasting excellent restaurants and lively entertainment. 

A blend of architectural styles spanning three centuries lines beautiful historic streets that welcome one of the most famous annual Independence Day parades in the nation. 

Nestled snugly into a well-protected harbor, Bristol affords ample opportunity for sailing and other water sports.
