Visiting Bristol VA or TN?  Take your pick of Bristol hotels!


Bristol, Virginia is the epitome of a small Southern city, with a population that barely reaches 18,000. However, the locals love it that way, as most everyone knows everyone else. It’s the definition of what a little town should be, complete with tall tales, generations-old families, and a rich historical background.

In big cities, you would expect nightclubs and bars galore, with a vibrant nightlife scene that rocked until the wee hours. However, Bristol is peaceful in comparison. This is the Southern city you would come to for quiet, with a more personal, close-knit vibe that encompasses the whole town. Sure, there are a few bars, but last call is usually around 2 a.m. and the dance floors are accompanied by, more often than not, old-fashioned, quarter-powered jukeboxes.
