Wish we had time to really visit the places
Jun 2021
While staying overnight in Bristol, we took a late afternoon stroll down State Street. Plenty of choices for restaurants along with other stores and nicely kept up. We didn't have time to view menus and most stores were closed on this Tuesday evening (many closed at 3PM to 5PM) but it was an enjoyable walk well worth taking.

Making a comeback after covid
Jun 2021
There are some closed storefronts, but there are still some nice shops and restaurants looking for patrons. The Bristol sign at night is cool.

Good antique shopping
Feb 2021
I enjoy the antique stores but the antiques seem overpriced to me. Too expensive, at least for me.. However, you can spend an entire afternoon in the shops just looking. You might find a nice little ice cream/gelato shop. If you do, stop and enjoy.

Two states in one trip
Jan 2021
A great place to spend a few hours walking and shopping. The best part is at night seeing the lovely Bristol sign illuminated.

The shops are great and the dining choices are plentiful.

Charm and Amenities
Sep 2020 • Friends
Downtown had lots of charm and only a few shops worth browsing. It was a little disappointing but over all it was good

Photo op spot!
Sep 2020
This is a most-do when you are in the area. Great photo spot. The people are very nice, even when trying to get a photo in the middle of the street! There are lots of great shops to go into. There are a few restaurants. The old brick building and all the architectural detail are amazing to look at. We need to look up to see some of the best details.

Stand in two states
Aug 2020 • Couples
People love the opportunity to stand in the middle of the street and be in two states (Va/Tn). People in cars are use to it and just let you have your moment. While there be sure to stop into Cranberry Lane for unique shopping and just off State Street on the Virginia side go to Blackbird Bakery

Amazing Area and Place
Aug 2020 • Business
While in Bristol on a business trip we decided to check this area out! Nostalgia and more was offered; specialty shops, dining places and boutiques....
Quaint and a very neat place to walk, see and enjoy an afternoon and have a bite to eat or shop. Recommend if in the area and many spots to eat, drink or just hang out!

Two States at same time!
Jul 2020
Drive up and then down the street and be in two different states, good walking area for different shops on both sides of the street, several good places to eat and drink within walking distance. Lot of history here in the area. Nice to see and check out the sign at night. Historical markers that explain a lot for area by the depot. Nice area to get some walking and sightseeing in, good experience
