Bristol is mainly a residental area, we have many two and three family homes as well "builders neighborhoods" or areas of undeveloped land that a builder bought out and started to build newer homes that had fairly all the same design. I currently reside in one of these neighborhoods. I love it!
Our commerical area is along a stretch of road called Rt 6. Here you can find most of the grocery stores, fast food places, banks, clothing stores, restaurants, etc. Our city is also home to one of the first Checkers (a fast food chain from the south) in CT.
I attended Bristol Central High School. I absolutely loved the school. We excelled in sports and we just had a great sense of pride and community. There are two high schools besides mine, a Catholic high school, St. Paul's and Bristol Eastern High School, our rival school and the school that Dan actually attended.
(we argue over which high school our future kids will go too.)
