NASCAR RACES AND DRAGWAY NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP At Bristol Motor Speedway (8 miles)
The most talked about car races.
ABINGDON HIGHLANDS FESTIVAL Come see why Abingdon was named a "Virginia Main Street" destination in 2007 and an "American Dream Town" in 2006 -- and why the Virginia Highlands Festival is a Top 20 "must see" event (National Geographic Traveler, April 2005).
Whenever in the area for a couple of days or a week, come and visit one of Bristol's oldest homes . In the middle of the historic district on Solar Hill, you will feel at home the moment you step in.
Solar Hill residents are working on a walking tour brochure for this beautiful area which is part of Bristol's revitalization project. Come and see how homeowners have restored these beautiful homes from the past. We are all proud of our accomplishments and hope that by seeing our work, more people will want to take on such a project whether in town or any other part of the country. Preserving history is the key to our society's future, I am glad I am part of it and proud to show it off. If you want to learn about Solar Hill visit solarhill.tripod.com
FLO'S HIDEAWAY IS NOT A HOTEL, MOTEL OR EVEN AN INN,
It is a private residence open to a few guests during special events in and around town to help promote preservation of our heritage. WE DO NOT ACCEPT OVERNIGHT GUESTS OUTSIDE OF SPECIALS EVENTS
CALL IF YOU WISH TO TOUR THE PROPERTY. We ask for a $5 donation per person payable by check made out to Bristol Historical society.
