Love the town and everything about it

It can be expensive to live her depending on which part of town you reside in. The taxes are high. There aren't a lot of vacant properties. The best places to live are downtown or the highlands.
Not much crime happens here. Because of the lack of excitement if the police are needed they respond promptly.

In bristol we don't have a lot of big companies. For large stores and malls you have to travel about 25 minutes. However, our local restaurants are some of the best in RI.

Bristol has a wonderful small town atmosphere
The biggest income comes from small business owners
