The Daily Scoop, Bristol, Rhode Island. How far would you drive for super premium ice cream?
One of our favorite coastal towns to visit in New England is Bristol, Rhode Island. Unlike many other coastal towns, Bristol has yet to be overdeveloped. When you are near the water it is quiet and relaxing, hopefully, this serene place will remain unspoiled for all to enjoy for many years to come. A fun fact about Bristol - it is the home of the oldest July 4th parade in the country.

If you do go to Bristol here are a few suggestions for things to do in the area.
Walk across the street to the water front, bring a chair or blanket and relax while watching the ocean or you can take a walk along the water front.
Bristol is different in that the main retail area is not located on the water but a street up. If you enjoy shopping, then definitely take a stroll up the hill to Hope Street. Don't expect hundreds of boutiques but there is enough to keep you busy for a little while.
If you like public gardens visit the BLITHEWOLD Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum.
Want something else to eat after dessert or a drink go to the recently opened British Beer Company or on the deck at DeWolfe's Tavern which overlooks the water.
