This drive from one side of Newport to the other along what appears to be a point out into the ocean, there are plenty of places to pull in park and get out and experience nature. Enjoy!

Take a peaceful ride along the water's edge. There is a park where you can pull up and view the water's edge or Stop along the way, find a bench and take a book, too!

It doesn't get better than this...classic, gorgeous, peaceful, historic... a family routine! Lots of places to pull over and gasp, and to reconnect to your zen. We take this ride many times a year and it never gets old.

Great views and nice 10 mile bike loop. Can stop in at Castle Hill for a drink on the lawn or just power it our and get some exercise. Traffic was not a problem.

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.
