Colt State Park image
Bristol, RI
(range: 3 miles)
Colt State Park’s 464 acres of lawns, stone walls, and curving drives along one of the state’s most spectacular shorelines stands in contrast to one of Rhode Island’s charming, compact, historic seaports, the Town of Bristol. On July 4th, every year since 1785, the town of Bristol puts on America’s team colors and hosts a national celebration that’s actually older than the ratification of the U.S. Constitution. Fittingly, it was Rhode Island which closed that exercise, and the nation began. (This excerpt taken from the Colt State Park website)
