We have a place in Newport, and every time we are there, we make it a point to drive along Ocean Drive. It is beautiful in any weather and it is free. There is also Breton State Park, for a place to stop and walk around or have a picnic lunch. Just a great place.

Whenever anyone visits me in Newport, they request a ride down to Ocean Drive. It never disappoints.

Decided to go for the ocean drive after arriving to see the mansions a little too late and they closed. It was so worth the drive and stopped a few times to take pictures and just watch the ocean. Breathtaking! Cant wait to do it again.

Along with the cliff walk out door lovers can spend a great day. Sensational views around every corner and there are plenty! Check the map and make the most of your tour!

When I took the cliff walk back in July I loved it, but didn't make it all the way to the end..... Now in February I still wanted to see the ocean area, but it was real cold and I really was not in the mood for a long cold walk, so we decided to visit one of the mansions.... More

We drove along Ocean Drive and it was beautiful, even in the winter with snow on the ground. Worth the drive.

An amazing ride "staring at the sea, staring at the sand", with places where you can park an enjoy the views with cliffs and rocks. Remember to bring some bread to feed the seagulls.

This is a wonderful drive that circles from downtown Thames St. all the waay around the coast (or as close as you can get to it due to the mansions) then up onto Belleview Ave to get a glimps of the historic mansions. I would suggest taking this trip more than one so another person can drive and the original... More

We drove along Ocean Drive and the view was amazing. It was a perfect sunny day. We pulled over a few times to take it all in. The color of the water was beautiful.
