Located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Bristol is a twin city divided by the Tennessee/Virginia state line, which runs the length of State Street in our historic downtown. Bristol is home to Bristol Motor Speedway, the world’s fastest half mile track and The Birthplace of Country Music Museum, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institute. Bristol holds the honor of being named the Birthplace of Country Music by U.S. Congress in 1998.
Bristol isn’t just about music and racing. There are events for all ages and interest such as film festivals, wine tasting, farmer’s market, community theater and many more. Having four distinct seasons and a temperate climate there are abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation. This favorable location, which boasts a sound infrastructure and a combined population of 44,000 with a strong work ethic, make Bristol an extremely desirable place to live.
