“you won't believe the houses”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

Never seen anything like the homes/mansions on this drive. Beautiful driving along the ocean--and it's free. We recommend it

“Best Bargain in Newport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

Want a fun day that doesn't cost anything / much? Take a drive out along Ocean Drive and stop at various spots along the ocean and walk out on the rocks. The homes and views are amazing.

“pedalled the route”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Brought our bikes with us on this vacation. Took an afternoon and pedalled all along the coast from the downtown area. Great ride and views. Most of the road had a lane reserved for bikes along the side. Went several miles and loads of places to stop and enjoy the view.

“2nd best way to see the beauty of RI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

The only better way is to see RI from the water. Ocean Drive is a great drive along the coast with nicely paved roads and plenty of scenery and high end real estate to keep you interested.

“Man cannot top Mother Nature”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Athough built by man, the road showcases the Ocean in its natural state. Although many visit to see the mansions, and they are nice to look at, they do not upstage the ocean and its power and glory. Visit on a stormy day if you are brave, or any day and you will see the power of the ocean. There are overlooks for viewing, a day worth spending. Humbling
