The Town of Bristol

EAT: Eat authentic at Chicago’s Downtown Eatery with a taste of the Windy City’s famous Chicago-style hot dog or pack their “Kitchen Sink” pizza and go for a picnic at Congdon Park. Enjoy a home-style meal at Evan’s Sidewalk Café and then relax at the Red Bird
at the end of the day with a cold adult beverage.

SHOP: Shop farmhouse soaps, scented accents and vintage heirlooms at Camille’s Florals and Gifts or from a rainbow of quilting fabrics and inspirational accessories at the Lavender Patch. Discover local hidden gem Rob’s Barbershop for a quick cut and conversation. Browse and sample the wines produced on site in the rustic tasting room that overlooks the orchard then select a bottle (or two) of your
favorites at Fruit Hills Winery & Orchard. The patio is the perfect location to enjoy a glass while taking in the beauty of the Bristol fruit hills.

EXPLORE: Explore the St. Joe River by canoe or kayak or try your racquet skills with friends and family at the new Cummins Park pickleball courts. Catch the “daily grind” and some stoneground flour at Bonneyville Mill and explore the 7 miles of hiking trails that meander through the park. Relive the past through eclectic exhibits at a 1920s-era high school turned history center at the Elkhart County Historical Museum and catch an Elkhart Civic Theatre production at the historic Bristol Opera House.
