  • A local favorite and a great place to hang out during the day or to just catch the sunset. Before you reach the main point area there‚Äôs a few stops to look at some nature as well.  more »

  • I think I was expecting this to be a bit lengthier. It's mostly just a cruise around homes that you can barely see and a little bit of ocean. Not the highlight of our trip but if you're doing it anyway, try to time it so you can see the sunset at Brenton Point. You'll have plenty of time to finish the drive by dusk and we really enjoyed the view from there.
