“Beautiful even on a cloud day”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

I went on this drive when it was cloudy out (without a map!) yet the route was easy enough to follow. It was absolutely gorgeous and the road wasn't busy since it was March so I could take my time and enjoy the ocean and mansions. I will definitely be doing this again, it was the coolest thing I have done in Newport so far!

“Relaxing walk”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

I took a lovely sunset walk. Beautiful view. I can only imagine how spectacular it would be during sailing season!

“Construction”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Ocean drive is currently under construction. Be aware of that. So basically it is closed, you can partially enjoy it but that's it. I don't know when they're going to finish the construction. Check it out before going there.

“You have to do this”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Doing this drive gives you a wonderful view of the ocean and the beautiful old (and some new) homes that line the road. Part of it is shut down for repairs (probably Sandy damage) but then you get to drive on interior roads that are just as interesting.

“A lovely way to get a feel for Newport today”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Definitely take this drive if you want to get a feel for Newport outside of the town center and preserved history of the mansions.
