“Drive”
Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

Since it is winter time was able to drive very slowly and view all the beautiful sights. They are building more huge houses out here.

“Beautiful Drive along the ocean.”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

We had the opportunity to drive along Ocean Drive. We stopped and admired the beauty of Newport. Ocean Drive is gorgeous if you have the time, especially at sunset.

“Scenic and beautiful”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

The drive was beautiful. Many beautiful homes and areas scenic spots. Some areas have pull off spots so you can park and take some pictures. I noticed a lot of tailgating in Rhode Island, so if you are taking the scenic drive and someone comes behind you I would just let them go around otherwise they will ride your bumper the entire way.

“great views”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

you can stop at the fort and walk or stop along the drive to jump onto the cliff walk, which is partly closed now due to recent storm damage. You can see across to Jamestown, across to Newport center, out to sea and watch the surfers. Don't do this in summer! Too crowded.
