Visiting a new city on vacation is always a great way to see more of the United States while enjoying the vacation itself. There are plenty of places that are very popular on the East Coast, but if you want a different town to see and visit, take your family to Bristol, Connecticut. The city has roughly 60,000 people living in it. But they are well located in the state, and even close enough to New York City that you can also visit there if you wanted to.
If you are into movies and the cinema, you and the family could visit Witch’s Dungeon Classic Movie Museum. Here, you can see many different figures from classic horror movies. With everything from Count Dracula to The Creature from the Black Lagoon, horror movie fans will get to walk up close to some of the scariest characters from movie history. Not only do they have life-sized figures, but you can also take a look at some other movie memorabilia they own.
If horror movies are not your favorite thing, do not worry, there are tamer attractions to visit. The American Clock and Watch Museum is a great place to visit for collectors of all types of timepieces. You can learn all about the history of American-made watches and see their collection of over 5,500 different clocks that were made in the United States over hundreds of years.
Visiting in the summer months is a great choice because you can then visit Lake Compounce. This outdoor amusement park is a great way for the whole family to let loose and enjoy their vacation time. The park is home to many different roller coasters, water attractions, and much more. This spot is a definite win for anyone looking to just have fun.
Marc Blazejowski, a retired Bristol police officer, has set his roots in this town, and he has always called it his home, for good reason. He enjoys everything it has to offer.
