“Amazing glimpses of how the 1% live”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Worth the trip, in fact you may want to loop a few times if you're the driver. Great views of the Atlantic and some truly amazing homes.

“Sublime at Sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

There's no reason not to slowly saunter (drive, bike) along this this gem of natural Newport beauty. We happened to catch it as the sun was setting and it cast a golden glow along the way. You'll glimpse a few bodacious homes, a grand swimming beach, and stunning scenery. Don't pass it by.

“Enjoyable day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Loved seeing the beautiful homes? There were a lot of senior citizen drivers we had to dodge. Found the locals very helpful in pointing out other sites as well.

“Scenic, beautiful!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

No trip to Newport is complete without a leisurely, relaxing drive down Ocean Drive! The mansions are amazing and the view of the ocean is breathtaking! There are alot of places to pull over and just enjoy the scenery or to take photographs.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Only 10 km long, but peaceful and quiet and every corner revealed another breathtaking view. Highly worthwhile.
