We went in the winter and had a beautiful sunny day with minimal tourists and cars. It felt like we had it all to ourselves.

Take this drive as it is the next best way to get views of the ocean and glimpses of how the other half lives or lived…

Nice slow drive soaking up the coastline. Worth it to stop the car at the rest stops and just let the breeze do its thing. Don't go if you're in a hurry.

It's worth taking the time to drive down Ocean Drive - especially early in the morning when it's not crowded or at sunset. Beautiful old houses and estates, stunning water views and a rocky beach to explore.

If you ever been to any ultra wealthy neighborhood, you’ve seen ocean drive. Side views of nice mega-houses, hedges, gates and some occasional ocean glimpses. Nice smoothie wide road. No, I would bother. Cliff walk is so much better for both mansions and views!

Great view of the ocean worth the time to take this quick drive. Not much traffic so the ride was enjoyable.

This is only a foot path on a rocky ledge if the sea! Padlock your bike at the end of the street at the entrance to the cliff walk.
