Bristol is famous for being the “Birthplace of Country Music” as some of the first commercial recordings of this musical genre —featuring the Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers—were created within city limits. The city is also home to the Bristol Motor Speedway NASCAR track that hosts up to 160,000 spectators.

But what about Bristol amenities? Fear not, new resident! Bristol is home to a good mix of suburban convenience and urban character. Recent renovation in the downtown area along historic State Street has created a long strip of cute restaurants, bars, shops and even a farmer’s market. Further from town, you’ll find the large box stores and chains that make shopping easy.

Outdoor lovers will relish in proximity to the Cherokee National Forest, which is located about 40 miles south of town and offers a wide variety of outdoor recreational activities.

As far as neighborhoods go, the Bristol rental market should make your apartment search fairly easy. Whether you’re looking for urban living downtown or suburban comfort, there’s a great Bristol apartment pretty much anywhere you look.

Starting downtown, you’ll find newly developed lofts and condominiums along State Street and the surrounding area. Many of these rentals offer furnished apartments for rent, as well as studio apartments and efficiencies. Two bedrooms in this area range from $600 to $800.

Just south of downtown you’ll find the lovely Steele Creek State Park and new townhome rentals along its borders. Many of these apartment rentals have great amenities, including gyms, pools and clubhouses. Two bedrooms in this area range from $550 to $700.

If you’re looking for cheap apartments with short-term lease options, check in the eastern portion of town. You’ll find a ton of varied rental options. Two bedrooms here range from $450 to $650.

The far eastern portion of town, near the Bristol Golf and Country Club, has been subject to recent housing construction, as well. Here, you’ll find the best of Bristol’s suburban living in both condominiums and rental homes. Two bedrooms generally range from $600 to $800.

So welcome to Bristol! Enjoy all that this historical, cultural Tennessee town has to offer!
