I’m presume this is an honor… according to a recent East Bay RI article, Bristol was
named one of the 2009 Dozen Distinctive Destinations in the country…
For 10 years, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, based in Washington, D.C., has recognized communities that offer cultural and recreational experiences different from typical vacation destinations. Bristol is one of 12 communities selected this year for the honor, and was cited for being a “quintessential New England waterfront town” with an “unwavering commitment” to preservation.
Now stand back and watch the tourists flock to our little town.
