Outer Bristol sits close to some of the most scenic
mountains in the eastern United States. Residents live in this sleepy
neighborhood to feel like part of nature, to get away from it all and to lay
back in the afternoon sun and take a nap without a care in the world. This
area lies 6 miles southeast of the city center. Travel along rural highways
west and then north to reach downtown Bristol and the state line. Bristol
Tennessee City Schools provide public education to children. A few religious
academies in town have alternative curricula. King University and Northeast
State Community College mark higher education institutions in the area..
Restaurants & Nightlife
Outer Bristol contains few local restaurants
as most eateries exist closer to more heavily populated parts of town.
Bars and music venues are located close to downtown Bristol. Several live
music venues host country, bluegrass and Americana acts thanks to the
culture of country music in the area.
Mad Greek International Cuisine specializes in Mediterranean flavors of
Greece and Italy with fan favorites such as gyros, pizza and pasta. The
spankopita platter includes spinach cheese pie, a hearty dish made from
spinach, feta cheese and herbs wrapped in phyllo dough. Try beef tavas for
a sumptuous treat--the slow-cooked and fresh vegetables are marinated in
red wine before cooking. Avocado egg rolls represent a culinary delight on
the appetizer menu with avocado, corn, onions and tomatoes alongside sweet
cilantro dipping sauce. Order sub sandwiches or hamburgers for something
quick and easy to take with you on a busy day.
Blue Circle features old-fashioned hamburgers, hot dogs and sandwiches
typical of a diner from the 1950s. The restaurant on Bluff City Highway,
opened in 1964, still has its original sign, and it is the last location
of a 30-store chain that started in Knoxville in 1931. The specialty item
comes with a grilled patty, diced onions and mustard on a steamed bun. Try
the rib-eye steak sandwich with tender cuts of steak or the chicken Philly
that contains grilled chicken, provolone cheese, onions and peppers. The
Circle Burger Challenge marks a contest during which you must eat at least
one more burger than the previous record holder within a 30-minute time
limit. Test your burger-eating mettle by downing dozens of patties, and if
you win you don't have to pay for the food. If you come up short, get
ready to pay for each burger.

the oyster Rockefeller with bacon, onion, spinach and mushroom along with
Parmesan cheese, cream and a balsamic reduction. Try the nutritious
mandarin kale salad for the second course. This light fare has a bed of
kale, red cabbage, carrots and orange bits alongside sesame crisps and
shoyu vinaigrette. Choose one of 12 main courses that feature fusions of
European, American and Asian influences. Akashi poached trout features
ginger and scallions cooked in peanut oil and served on top of sticky rice

History & Culture
Bristol started as a vast plantation owned by Rev. Joseph King. He
eventually divided up his land for the town in 1852. Approximately 52
acres were on the Virginia side and 48 acres on the Tennessee side.
The term "country music" was coined in town during the 12-day "Bristol
Sessions" in 1927. Legendary singer Jimmie Rodgers recorded his first
album at this time. The Birthplace of Country Music Museum on the Virginia
side of the border honors this historic event in American culture.
NASCAR races happen yearly at the vaunted Bristol short track as the
area's single-largest event in terms of attendance. In the winter,
residents tour the track lit up for the winter holidays.
Every September, the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion showcases three days
of Appalachian music. This festival that combines bluegrass, country and
rock represents a real treat for Americana fans.
Definitely bring a car to get around Outer Bristol. Bicycles are fine for
residential streets, but main roads need motorized vehicles because of the
hills and long distances between cross streets outside of town. Sidewalks
are prevalent within the city itself, but not in the outskirts. Parking
can get tight downtown during major events, but businesses generally have
enough spots for regular patrons.
If your car breaks down, call a taxi service to pick you up. Take Highway
435 west until you reach Highway 421, and then head north to reach town.
The closest Bristol Tennessee Transit bus route stops at the Industrial
Park in the southeast part of town from 6:30 am to 3:35 pm weekdays.
Bristol prides itself on downtown businesses that thrive due to local
support and because of a booming tourist economy. A few national chains
call the city home, including Walmart, Target and Best Buy. Kroger,
Lilley's Market and Food City note several supermarkets for basic grocery
needs. State Street Farmer's Market opens Wednesdays and Saturdays from
May to October for shoppers to peruse fresh food selections.
Serendipity Boutique has two locations to serve women who want to "feel
comfortable and confident" wearing their clothes. Search for summer
dresses, cardigans, sweatshirts and leggings for any occasion. Jewelry,
purses and shoes complete the picture with one-of-kind selections you
won't find at big-box stores. Purchase themed t-shirts to support local
causes. Discover the girls' section for smaller sizes suitable for teens
Kil'n Time Ceramics represents Bristol's contemporary ceramics studio. An
all-day studio fee lets you paint as many pieces as you want. Individual
small pottery blanks start at $5 and larger pieces top out at $15. It
takes about one to two hours to paint. Kil'n Time has an event space for
birthday parties or informal gatherings. Create a food-safe, non-toxic
piece of art for you to display in your home proudly while making fond
memories at the same time.
Several parks make Bristol an ideal place for outdoor activities,
especially during warmer months in the clear, Appalachian air. Charlie
Robinette Park, at the foot of a national forest in southern Bristol, has
a little something for everyone. Stroll along a concrete trail for daily
exercise or compete against a friend in tether ball. Kick around a soccer
ball or join a team in backyard football on the multi-use field. Two
enclosed areas give large and small dogs a place to roam among their
Steele Creek Park hosts several annual events and festivals. Hunt for
Easter eggs with the kids every spring thanks to sponsorship from local
churches. The local disc golf club competes for the annual Ice Bowl
championship in early February. Wildlife Weekend in mid-October features
an art show and nature exhibits at the nature center. Join a cave crawl or
