      Many people might not think to visit a city like Bristol, CT. It's a city that is quiet and doesn't have a reputation as a vacation getaway. It is however an excellent place to visit or live. I had a great time in the city and really enjoyed the easy going atmosphere there.

      If your a sports fan, you should know Bristol, CT is home to ESPN. I didn't have a chance to visit the studios, but if you're a sports fan with some time, you should check them out. They broadcast many of their shows from the studios there and you might have a chance to meet your favorite ESPN personality.

      I visited the Witch's Dungeon Classic Movie Museum located in Bristol. Inside you will find many of the classic movie monsters. If you enjoy horror movies and a little scare now and then, this is the place for you. I especially like the Count Dracula and Wolf Man exhibits.

      The city of Bristol is primarily a residential city and would make a nice place for you to settle down and raise a family. The housing market is pretty steady there and the prices are reasonable. Bristol, CT is a great city that is really worth the time to visit, you might just end up deciding to stay there.
