This week our Spotlight is on Bristol, Connecticut, which is home to another one of our Next Street Locations. Bristol is an exciting place to learn to drive and then adventure in all this city has to offer. For more experienced students you can practice changing lanes and driving on the highway or if you are just starting out there are parking lots and quiet roads to get used to life behind the wheel.
For a day filled with fun you can drive on over to Lake Compounce just 12 minutes from our Next Street Location. Lake Compounce is home to the number one wooden roller coaster in the world. In the summer there is a giant water park with fun for all ages, then the fall hosts the Haunted Graveyard with spooky fun throughout the park, and finally winter rolls around with Holiday Lights.
The American Clock and Watch Museum gives you a chance to journey through time. This collection is the largest collection of American clocks and watches in the world. The museum displays different exhibitions each year and also holds events for the public.
If you are in the mood for a sweet treat, the Ice Cream Churn on North Main Street is the perfect stop for some ice cream. Whether it be on a hot summer day or curbing a craving in winter this spot offers many different flavors and toppings.
If you are a teen driver this city offers great places to learn to drive or to perfect those skills you've learned with your Next Street instructor. You can take the Boulevard to practice changing lanes. This road has some high volume traffic which give you the chance to practice driving with others. Or maybe you are just getting used to the feel of a car. Head over to the Price Chopper parking lot with an experienced driver and test yourself behind the wheel.
Go ahead, spend a few hours or a day in Bristol, Connecticut. We are happy to be there and you'll be too.
