In an area known for conspicuous consumption, take the Ocean Drive, accept the splendor and opulence, pretend you don't need or desire that kind of money and status and just appreciate it for what it is.

Great drive along the ocean just outside Newport. Beautiful vistas and homes and beaches. Great in summer or colder months.

We did this drive twice on weekdays in the late afternoon and loved it. We pulled over and took some great pictures. It was so pleasant with the ocean breezes. It made us understand why this area was and is so popular in the summer. The only bad thing is we didn't have bicycles with us to further enhance the experience.

Not your ordinary beach houses. These are huge homes. Some can be easily seen from the road, some just a bit in view. Enjoyed the drive and stops along the way for a few pictures.

We drove Ocean Drive based on recommendations but did not find it to be that special. A few nice views of the ocean and a few nice houses. Skip it if you are short of time in Newport.
