Make it A Day!

Linden Place Musem

We invite you to explore Bristol, Rhode Island, America’s most patriotic town and home to the oldest 4th of July Parade in the nation!  Sea Rose Cottage is situated in Bristol’s downtown waterfront historic district and is adjacent to the parade route.  Bristol is rich in history, architectural resources and maritime tradition and was named a 2009 Distinctive Destination by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.  Situated just 65 miles south of Boston, Bristol is conveniently accessed by Rte 24 South— halfway between Providence and Newport, RI.

Explore Bristol is a great resource for finding out about all things Bristol and planning your next vist.

While you are in town, be sure to check out some of these wonderful spots.
