a tight one lane road in either direction and one cannot really take in the sights and sounds while driving, as there is always another car right behind you trying to get you to move it faster.
The 'mile' is about 5 or 6 kilometers long, with scenery of beautiful beaches and boardwalk on one side with colourful vendors selling their crafts to the other side being high rise hotels and restaurants tapering off to a poorly maintained hospital on one end and a busy casino on the other end.
there is always ongoing construction and this does not make for easy driving either.
I suggest you find a parking and walk the 'mile'. an experience, none the less.
