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..

Downtown Bristol 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 Troutdale Dining Room epitomizes the pinnacle of fine dining in Bristol within the confines of a richly restored, 1850 Victorian-style home. Chefs use the freshest local ingredients when possible. Eat a formal, three-course meal at dinner. Appetizers focus on seafood, such as 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 and soy sauce.

620 State anchors downtown's nightlife thanks to a full upscale menu, drink specials and live entertainment. More than 20 beers flow out of the tap nightly, from dark stouts to light ales. Relax with your date or a group of friends while listening to national acts and eating from one of the most varied menus in town. Order through the restaurant's smartphone app for even better specials. Live music happens every weekend in the evening. If downtown rocks and rolls, you're probably hearing the sounds from 620 State.
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.

Local Transportation

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 Shopping

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 and pre-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.

Bristol Parks

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 canine fellows.

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 nature walk to explore some of Bristol's natural beauty during this wild weekend.
