My fiance and I have purchased our first home in Bristol Borough, which just won Best Small Town in America. Bristol borough is beautiful with so much small city charm. People are friendly and love to network, you just have to visit Mill Street where you can find vendors that will take care of all of your needs.
Bristol Borough is a small community and is highly underrated. It is right bh the Deleware river and is a quite a pleasant sight. I have lived here for five going on six years and i truely has felt like i have been here longer and it feels like home. Sometimes the atmosphere here is a bit dull but there are many things to keep you entertained such as festivals. There are a nice variety of festivals that go on theoughtout the year. Some include Italian day, Puerto Rican day, Historic Bristol day, etc. All these show the towns folk how fun and intersting other culture are and can be. There is a lot going on for tbis small town and it does nothing but keep on growing. I see big things in the future for Bristol Borough.
There's a lot of drug issues, especially amongst the high school students, and there seems to be more petty thievery as of late. Otherwise, it's a pleasant, small community with a fair amount of local events that take place. Although if I weren't born and raised here, I likely wouldn't choose to live here. I would like to see more public events.
