Grab your bags, exit arrivals at Bristol Airport (BRS-Bristol Intl.), and collect your rental car. Which one you climb into depends on where you’re headed. If you’ll be spending a lot of time driving in downtown Bristol, around 7 miles from the terminal, go for something zippy and small. A compact car that’s easy to maneuver will be ideal for navigating those winding city streets. But with almost endless things to see, like the gorgeous rocky coastlines of the surrounding region, you’ll probably be racking up those miles. A bigger vehicle, like a full-size car or an SUV, will make lengthier road trips a pleasure.
