It was 10-9-14 with blue sky. It was great to see the housing and coast line. The beaches are sooo different than anywhere else we have been.

Nice way to take in the beauty of Newport - you have the sea on one side and mansions on the other. There's a few places to pull over and take in the views and a number of parks where you could stop and have a picnic lunch.

The homes and view of the ocean were breath taking. Everything you would expect. There were several places to stop and park and take in the views.

Love Newport and the local landscape. It is so worth a trip to see. Great restaurants and you must see the Breakers and other mansions. So beautiful.

We parked by the beach and did the cliff walk. That can be a short walk or one of many miles which was great for our hiking goals as we did the whole thing and returned partially via streets.

My first time to Newport and I am in love! Ocean drive is just beautiful. I can only imagine who lives there! We stopped and enjoyed the sunset and took a look at all the wonderful architecture. A must see on your trip!

Beautiful vistas. Ocean views which go on forever. Most Saturdays and Sundays during the Summer there are groups of kite flyers with huge amazing kites which are spectacular. Graceful sailboats darting about the bay . Cruise by mansion after mansion from the glided area. So much to take in. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the shoreline.

I can only begin to imagine how spectacular the experience will be on a warm day when you can step out of the car, park, sit back on a bench, and lounge to take in the beauty of nature. Did I mention the eye candy that happens to be the stunning mansions? There is no doubt in it being a... More
