Bristol | Tennessee Vacation


The Birthplace of Country Music, a mecca to NASCAR fans, and a scenic community with quaint shops and natural beauty, Bristol has a little bit of everything waiting for you to explore.

Discover a place where peaceful mountains, rolling hills and tranquil lakes converge in one accessible location. Bristol is a place where you can hear relaxing, soft strains of old-time music or the hard-driving sounds of one of the countrys most popular NASCAR venues, Bristol Motor Speedway.

Tour a cavern where Indians once lived or a place where the sounds of country music were first heard. Bristol boasts a main street where contemporary boutiques reside next to antique shops and a landscape where you can immerse yourself in culture, history and natural beauty.

This is Bristol, home to some of the best sights, sounds and thrills in Tennessee. Pick fresh produce from the garden of a local farmer. Wind in and out of shops in the historic downtown. Learn about the history behind the Birthplace of Country Music, or enjoy a live band in the warm evening air at the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion.
