We stayed in Bristol TN on the the first night of our trip last month. You can read about the first day of our journey here. Before we ventured further south we decided to visit Historic Bristol. We had been to NASCAR races at the Bristol Speedway many times but never visited the actual city.
We arrived in the early morning and were greeted with a sleepy town. It gave us the opportunity to wander and I could get some images without fighting traffic.
I always knew that Bristol was in both Tennessee and Virginia but I never realized the state line was the middle of main street! How cool is that!!
We found a bakery on Main Street with the BEST coffee I’ve ever had! I’m not exaggerating, it was amazing! I even thanked the barista before we left 🙂 And their egg & bacon sandwich was just perfect.
We then wandered to the train station as I was trying desperately to get an image of this sign.
It appears to light up at night which would be nice to see but we were heading on down the road.
We located the historic Bristol hotel and the Birthplace of Country Music Museum.
As we were leaving town I spotted this old sign with a Canon advertisement. Hank didn’t even blink when I said “stop”….he’s getting used to that!! Since I use a Canon camera I had to get this image!
