For an absolutely fantastic summer spot, look no further than Bristol Falls in Bristol. You can swim in the calm areas, jump off the cliffs and even make your way along the smooth, but slippery, rocks to a hidden cave behind the waterfall. While locals frequently enjoy this secluded swimming hole in VT, we think everyone should make the trip here to experience it for themselves. The best part is that it’s easy to get to and has plenty of parking, yet gorgeous spot is tucked away off the road. Stunningly beautiful and filled with excitement, you will never forget spending the day cooling down in this naturally amazing place.

You can find Bristol Falls (also known as Bartlett Falls) just off Route 116 on Lincoln Road in Bristol. Parking for the falls is on the right, and if you’re looking for the calmer Circle Current, continue up the road just beyond the parking for the falls. Have fun!
