“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

One of the not-to-be-missed activiteis if you visit Newport. Take some time along the way to stop and admire the architecture and setting of the beautiful homes, the vistas that unfold as you turn the corner, and the incredible coastline. Check to see what time the sun is setting and plan your drive to be at Bretton Point shortly before...you won't be dissappointed.

“nice drive along the sea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

It was very cold and even snowy, but still peaceful with gorgeous views. This part of the Atlantic is very different than the Florida coast that we were familiar with. It has a different kind of beauty well worth seeing.

“Wonderful View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

The drive is short and provides views that are absolutely wonderful. The power of the sea crashing into the rocks is a view that I never tire of seeing.

“Pretty enough to calm the nerves of a parent with a teen driver!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

A pleasant drive along the coast with enormous non-museum homes along one side and a view over the ocean to the other. In March on a windy day it was pretty chilly so there were few cars which made the drive even better.
