  • A beautiful, well marked drive alongside the Ocean, with several places to pull over, stop and sit. Gorgeous and well worth the time.

  • Great way to start off your visit to Newport! This short driver offers amazing coastal views and passes by many extravagant mansions, both historic and modern. You’ll pass by a couple of small but beautiful parks in Brenton Point and Fort Adams, along with a few small beaches nestled in along the rocky shoreline and the luxurious Castle Hill Inn. Really has a little bit of everything that makes Newport famous!
  • Beautiful to look at and people watch
