Bristol is an unincorporated community in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, United States. Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary (a stop on the Patuxent Water Trail) and the colonial town of Pig Point (formerly called Bristol Landing and Leon) are on the Patuxent River waterfront portion of Bristol. Pig Point saw War of 1812 action  and was the largest steamboat port on the Patuxent in the mid-1800s. Pig Point is a very significant Native American Early Archaic Period archaeological site.
The Chesapeake Beach Railway was completed in 1899 through Bristol; ruins of the Pindell Station and its general store in Bristol remain. The James Owens Farm, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the southern terminus of the Stephanie Roper Highway portion of Maryland Route 4 are also located in Bristol.
