We never tire of taking this scenic drive with views of the sea and rocky coves as well as beautiful homes. There is an area where you can park and stroll along the seashore. Don't leave Newport without taking this drive. It can be done quickly or slowly.

It's beautiful. It's scenic. Bring your camera. Cliffs and beaches, mansions, fishing, sightseeing, ocean vistas. We rode it on bicycles for a refreshing summer experience. Drove a rental "scoot coupe" on it the next day. Nicer on the bikes.

Husband and I drove along Ocean Drive in Newport. The scenery was amazing. We stopped at Breton State Park and parked the car. We sat there for a few hours drinking coffee and enjoying the sites.

Ocean drive is a wonderful, short drive along the coast. It really allows you to take in the full scale views and spend time exploring the rocks and little tidal pools. The salty air is invigorating, and you really could spend all day sitting on the rocks and watching the ocean. We got lunch at Rosemary and Thyme and drove... More

By all means take the time to enjoy the views offered while traveling Ocean Drive. Having done a quick ride 2 years ago, we purposely made time in our schedule to sit and take in the beautiful view. In fact, we liked it so much, we squeezed in another hour the following day. There are benches where you can sit... More

Ocean Drive in Newport RI was beautiful and relaxing. There were places to stop and explore the area. It was great for the explorer in the group. Scenery was gorgeous.

The views and the coast were perfect. The only issue we had was trying to follow the road. There were points on the drive that we got lost and ended up of the drive and had to retrace our turns to get back on it. Towards the end we could not figure out where the drive went so we just... More
