No matter your age, it’s always fun to step back to the 1950s, the era of diners with soda fountains and juke boxes that played your favorite rock-and-roll songs. Bristol 45 Diner in Bristol, Wisconsin, lets you do exactly that. We stopped in for breakfast during our July trip to the Kenosha area and were impressed with both the fun ‘50s atmosphere and the delicious food we were served.
The year is 1574, and the Queen is visiting the English city of Bristol. Merriment is everywhere: parades march down the streets, merchants hawk their wares, and minstrels and jesters entertain the villagers. For two months every summer, you can go back in time and take part in the recreation of Queen Elizabeth’s Bristol visit at the Bristol Renaissance Faire in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
