  • A Tale of Two Cities and Infinite Possibilities

    Thank you for your interest in Bristol! Located at the crossroads where the paths of four states intertwine, Bristol, itself, is a twin city that straddles the Tennessee/Virginia state line, which runs the length of State Street in our historic downtown. Bristol, recently named the Most Charming Town in America by ShopOnMain.com, is uniquely situated within a day’s drive of half the United States’ population.

    Bristol offers an exceptional quality of life, with low cost of living and moderately priced real estate. Located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, four distinct seasons and a temperate climate offer abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation. This favorable location, which boasts a sound infrastructure and a population with a strong work ethic, make Bristol an extremely desirable place to live.

    You truly feel like you’ve come home when you’re in Bristol!
