SERVPRO Brings Decades of Experience to Bristol Fire Damage Restoration Jobs
Local Bristol Property Owners Trust SERVPRO for House Fire Clean Up
While Bristol is best known at present as the home base of the ESPN network, it has a host of unique venues for both residents and visitors to enjoy. When theme parks come to mind, places like Disney World or Universal might spring to mind. However, the oldest continuously running theme park in the United States, Lake Compounce, is in Bristol. This amusement and water park is one of the top attractions in the state. In operation for over 170 seasons, it has several fun options. The wooden rail rollercoaster, Boulder Dash, is just one of the rides. Other attractions at the park include:
- Phobia Phear Coaster
- Rev-O-Lution coaster that gives riders that feeling of zero gravity
Fans of Clocks and Watches Have a Place in Bristol
Horology is the study of time, which is also an important part of the property and structure restoration process, and one of the best places in the United States to take in the wide array of timekeepers. This museum opened in 1952 as The Bristol Clock Museum. As the collection within the museum grew, it became the American Clock & Watch Museum. There are very few horology museums, and this one has a ranking as one of the best in the world. Visitors can see watches, clocks, and see an exhibit dedicated to Connecticut's own Eli Terry, who received a patent for the shelf clock mechanism.
New England Carousel Museum in Bristol
Carousels were the main attraction at most fairs and parks at the turn of the last century. This museum was founded in 1990 as a nonprofit educational organization about the art and history of carousels. The venue features many exhibitions, such as hands-on displays, shows, and programs throughout the 33,000 square-foot building. Attendees can choose from two levels of tours, one for adults and one designed to delight children. Another attraction is the display of over 100 antique wooden horses from defunct carousels. Visitors can learn how the various pieces got restored and even take a ride on the detailed indoor carousel.
