TOD's Top Three Things to do in Bristol


1) Colt State Park  

Colt State Park in Bristol is often referred to as the 'gem' of the State Parks System. The entire western border of the park is an open panorama onto Narragansett Bay. Open year round, the park offers four miles of bicycle trails passing along the Bay and through 464 acres of groomed fruit trees, carefully nurtured flowering bushes, and manicured lawns. Rich in history, it proudly displays ten large playfields, a historical museum, six picnic groves containing 400+ picnic tables and its' popular open air Chapel-By-The-Sea.

2) Herreshoff Marine Museum / America’s Cup Hall of Fame
The Herreshoff Marine Museum and America’s Cup Hall of Fame is dedicated to the education and inspiration of the public through presentations of the history and innovative work of the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company and the America’s Cup competition. The Museum celebrates excellence in design, innovation, education and technology and it is one of the nation’s most important historic maritime treasures.
