Ocean Drive is a relaxing drive along the rocky coast. There are many places where you can stop and take photos or go for a walk along the beach.

This 10 mile drive is absolutely beautiful! Large estates dot the drive along with wonderful ocean views and several park areas to explore.

Took this drive to get to our Thanksgiving dinner at Castle Hill Inn. Beautiful coastal views and scenery.

Towards the end of the day, with the sun setting, we drove through here. The views were pretty cool. It was quite windy this day, so you could really see the waves in the distance. It is a nice area.

A coastal road with many huge mansions looking out over the sea. Only a few minutes from Newport, worth doing on way to other attractions in area (The Breakers mansion and the Cliff walk). Ahh to be mega rich!

Outstanding views along the drive as you pass enormous mansion houses. Worth a trip outside of Newport.

We love visiting the Castle Hill Inn and Restaurant on the drive, adjacent to the Coast Guard station. Overlooking the Bay and ocean, the front lawn is the site of numerous concerts during the summer, like a movie scene... More

This is only a foot path on a rocky ledge if the sea! Padlock your bike at the end of the street at the entrance to the cliff walk.
