We did this drive on our way home unfortunately, so we didn't get to hop out of the car and enjoy it as much. This will be a focus of our next trip. It's almost another world from downtown Newport.

The views of the Atlantic Ocean were spectacular. The waves crashing on the rocks, and the smell of the ocean was so refreshing and invigorating. The mansions were spectacularly built, many secluded behind greenery or walls, but you could see the winding drives, and superbly manicured lawns. The salt marsh was beautiful also.

Loved Ocean Drive - very, very scenic without "homes" blocking the view. You can park along the side of the road and sit and contemplate life or enjoy the sailboats as they pass by.
