Seeing the hoes and the ocean so close is exhilirating. We never tire of seeing it even once during a storm.

This drive is scenic and historic; beautiful homes and mansions face the churning ocean . Sailboats in season, as well as larger ships ply the waters of the bay. Take a picnic lunch and watch the activity on a warm day. There are several places to stop and take pictures. We've been coming here every few years since the 60's and enjoy seeing the changes on Ocean Drive...for the better since a small park has been added. It's definitely part of the Newport Experience.

We did this before we went to dinner. It was a really nice little drive with a lot of places to stop and take pictures or relax and watch the sunset. It would be a great picnic spot!

Very nice scenery of the Newport coast and views of beautiful houses along the shore. Small cozy beaches, stopped at one to just walk around.
