Both adults and teen liked the ocean drive. The houses are interesting to look at, but the jewel is the views of the ocean and bays. Plenty of places to stop and walk around. Also, a state park at the midpoint. Thankful for the balance...More

This is a spectacular drive along the coast. The scenery — water, boats, rocky terrain—is lovely. You’ll see breathtakingly beautiful “summer cottages” — some built during the Guilded Age and many newer homes. A beautiful and easy drive.

Amazing views, easy cycle route. Stop off at Gooseberry Beach. Thoroughly recommended. Either way round there are amazing houses and sea vistas.

We walked half of this. Magnificant mansions, scenic views of the rocks and ocean. Pulloffs for fishing. Bathroom facilities at the state park at the point.

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.
