Join us as we venture to a new NEERS site, Bristol, Rhode Island. Bristol is a charming town on a peninsula of land that separates Mt. Hope Bay from Narragansett Bay. The town is full of small shops and restaurants and the meeting venue, while right on water, is also within easy walking distance to all that Bristol has to offer.
