Reviewed October 1, 2013

We walked many times along the stretch near the Cape Arundel Inn. Very pleasant and relaxing. Beautiful houses to look at along the way.

“Beautiful water views and magnificent photo opportunities”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Our hotel was on Ocean Ave so we really enjoyed driving down this waterfront road and stopping to take in the views and the photo opportunities. The Bush family compound is also on this road and was very impressive. If you are a fan of beautiful homes, there are plenty to look at here.

“Beautiful Views”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Took a bike ride down Ocean Ave all the way to St Ann's. beautiful views, not a lot of traffic. Some great stops along the way. High google recommend Port Lobster for a lobster roll lunch box and a quick ride up the street to the benches at St Ann's to eat it!

“Spectacular”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Beautiful homes looking out to the ocean - this is a gorgeous all American drive. Keep your eyes on the road, but detour frequently to get out and walk along the way. Especially beautiful in the fall, when houses are decorated with mums and pumpkins and fall leaves. Beauty.
