More than 5,000 people live in Bristol, a village in Kenosha County, Wisconsin. Bristol was once a town, but in 2010, it was incorporated as a village. No matter your age, you'll find all sorts of activities to enjoy in Bristol. The village is especially well-known for its equestrian facilities, which are ranked some of the best in the state. Every year, Bristol hosts its famous Renaissance Faire at a 30-acre site in town. Visitors come from all over to experience life in 16th century Elizabethan England and dine on unique food, try crafts, games, and sports from the era, and meet an interesting cast of characters.
While the Renaissance Faire isn't a pet-friendly event, there are lots of other ways to spend time with your dog in and around Bristol. The southeastern corner of town is where you'll find the Bristol Woods County Park. This 200-acre park has more than four miles of hiking trails for you to trek with your dog on a leash. Some of the park's other features include BBQ grills, picnic areas, playgrounds, and a nature center. If it's an off-leash activity you seek with your dog, the two of you can hop in the car and arrive at a dog park in a matter of minutes!
