Beautiful spots all along the way.

Just a wonderful stretch of road! For those hoping to see the Bush Family compound...nope! You can just view from very far away. But who needs it? The ocean is spectacular! I... read more

Parking was hard to find. The area is very busy and had many little shops there. The view was not bad but definitely not overwhelming. I would go again.

If you want to take a lovely walk looking at the rolling waves, choose Ocean Avenue. You can drive but it's more fun to walk and soak up the salty ocean air.

We took this road when returning from Nunan's Lobster Hut to Capt. Jefferd's Inn. What a lovely drive with a lot of nice homes! We drove it in the evening, but lighting was still sufficient to see everything.

Start at the Colony beach and walk past St. Ann's Church until you can see Walker's Point. The whole thing took us about an hour. We walked it with three kids (8, 9 and 11) and they had a good time. The church was probably more interesting to see than Walker's Point.

Don't miss taking a walk or a bike ride along Ocean Avenue. This may have been the highlight of our trip! The views were breath taking. Every stop we made was even prettier then the last. There were benches to rest on at every stop. The ride wasn't too bad on the hotel bikes we were using but eventually the... More

Stop every chance to take pictures. You won't be disappointed. Stop and view Walker Point. Just stop and smell the fresh air.

Take a short drive on Ocean Avenue to enjoy excellent views of the ocean and see how "the other half" lives. You will also have a nice view of the Bush compound. Maybe George and the gang will give you a wave.

This is a beautiful drive, with wonderful mansions and lovely views of the ocean. You can stop at Walker's Point and view the Bush Compound across the inlet. There are benches to sit on, and you can take pictures. The compound is just amazing. I didn't expect to see so many other cottages on that land, but it is truly... More
