Welcome to Bristol County

In Bristol County, Massachusetts, big things are happening - as big as a whale! Visit New Bedford, epicenter of the 19th-century American whaling industry, and tour New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park to see historic whaling artifacts, the Seaman’s Bethel chapel immortalized in Herman Melville’s epic novel “Moby-Dick,” and the authentic Ernestina Schooner vessel. But, if you prefer your boats a little bit larger, check out Battleship Cove in Fall River. Home to the USS Massachusetts and five other gigantic vessels, the cove now serves as a maritime museum. End your trip in first place at the NASCAR-sanctioned Seekonk Speedway, for fast cars and bigger thrills. It doesn’t get bigger than Bristol County; plan your trip today!
