    Bristol–get ready for the Maine event

    Break out the seasickness bands and lobster crackers! Bristol is most people's idea of idyllic maritime Maine, with a working harbor and miles of rocky Atlantic coastline. Between 2 bays in the Mid Coast area, Bristol is known for its fishing, colonial history, and largely untouched natural splendor. The town is largely residential, with neighborhoods of private homes connected by two-lane country roads. With a Bristol vacation rental, you’ll be able to take in the region’s unspoiled natural beauty at local spots like the scenic La Verna Preserve and the Colonial Pemaquid State Historic Site.

    The icemen (and fishermen) cometh to Bristol

    Fishing is a local pastime in Bristol, and a number of agencies offer boat charters for deep-sea excursions. Kayaking is also popular, and the many inlets, bays, and rivers around Bristol will give you numerous opportunities to get up close and personal with the region’s coastline. Winter brings activities like ice fishing and nordic skiing, and an annual festival each February revives the time-honored tradition of ice cutting – the removal of surface ice from lakes and rivers, using hand saws and other manual tools.

    Make time for maritime Bristol

    Not sure where to go? Flip a coin–tails says you’ll wind up at the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, which you might recognize from the back of the Maine state quarter. Guarding the rocky coastline between 2 bays, the structure has been a local fixture since 1827, and it’s home to a maritime museum, a learning center, and an art gallery. The Colonial Pemaquid State Historic Site is home to a reconstructed 17th-century fort, plus a museum with artifacts from the area’s long history of settlement.

    Bristol weather–rain, shine, and everything in between

    Bristol’s climate is somewhere between continental and maritime, which means the warm summers can get a little muggy, with overcast days relatively common all year round. June, July, and August tend to be the best months for avoiding rain, although you still might encounter the occasional summer storm. Since it’s right on the North Atlantic, Bristol’s winters are cold, with highs in the 20s and 30s from December through February. A Bristol vacation rental with a fireplace or a hot tub will help you stay warm during the region’s chillier winter months.

    Beautiful Bristol – it’s a shore thing

    Between Johns Bay and Muscongus Bay on the Atlantic Ocean, Bristol is largely defined by its rugged coastlines, which are dotted with long stretches of sandy beach. The scenic La Verna Preserve offers 120 acres of shoreline and coastal woodlands, and it’s known for its walking trails, birdwatching, and glimpses of the local wildlife. Areas around the broad, slow-flowing Pemaquid River are popular with birdwatchers. Your Bristol vacation rental will put you right at the center of one of the most pristine parts of the north Atlantic coast.
