It was a beautiful drive, even on a rainy day. We would have gotten out and did some walking if it had not been pouring!!
My husband and I have lived in Newport for 4 months, and one of my favorite places to go is Ocean Drive. I love the views and that you are able to get out on the rocks and explore a little closer than in a car. We had our engagement photos taken at Brenton's State Point right off of Ocean... More
I’m a photographer so I thoroughly enjoyed the water views on Ocean Drive. The houses were of course impressive but almost too much of the same thing and lost my interest fairly quickly. I’m honestly amazed that people have so much money to waste on a summer home. I just kept thinking about all the people that struggle just keep... More
This is a must do when you visit Newport. The mansions are gorgeous and so much fun to look at and compare. The ocean is nothing short of spectacular. Driving and seeing the awesome views is so enjoyable. There are plenty of places to park and walk along the shore. Our children love climbing the rocks and experiencing the wonderful... More
This would be at the top of my list when I make a return trip to Newport. The mansions are unbelievable and the scenery beyond the homes is breathtaking. This is one of those don't miss seeing attractions. Newport surprised me and I will be making a return visit. Very fun!

It was just gorgeous. There were some mansions on the Ocean side, but I can honestly say it didn't feel built up. Plenty of... More
Stayed in RI over night and spent the day driving around. Ending up on the road and let me say- the views were awesome and like no other. We even got to go on a public beach and take great pictures. Would defiantly recommend taking this scenic drive!!
