  • Went here after Newport Jazz Festival The mansions are beautiful and their location makes them even prettier. Brenton Point has a monument to stop at. Go slow and enjoy, but people will tailgate you. Ignore. Beautiful when the sun sets and the cliffs make great pictures.
  • I think it was a nice short drive. There are spots along the way where you can park the car and take in the views of the beautiful houses and the ocean. It’s definitely worth driving this route if you get a chance.
