Bristol's claim to fame is they have the longest continuous running 4th of July celebration in the USA starting c 1777. Bristol is a peninsula and has about 22,000 permanent residence. It is a typical, small seaport town and fun place to visit.

We had lunch at Aidan's and enjoyed a stroll around the historic homes and town buildings. Harbormasters building, an old armory is of great interest, as are numerous churches in the area.

I used to live near Hope St. It's a nice, safe place to go for a walk. There are little shops and restaurants. Definetly a good area to check out.

Sorry, I don't know. Being in Bristol it shouldn't be hard for you to find out locally.
