So glad we took the time to do this. Scenery is incredible. And the mansions you pass along the way aren't all that bad either -- LOL.

Any trip to Newport is worth the scenic drive at sunset! Great spots to stop and relax and watch the sun go down!

Beautiful relaxing drive along the coast. At 25 miles per hour you can appreciate the views. We went on a cloudy, sporadic rainy day. The best time for ocean dreams.

A ten mile drive to view the Atlantic Ocean crashing over rocks while at the same time viewing the multi-million dollar homes of the very fortunate. Plenty of parking, sitting, walking, picnicking. All free. In an area that offers endless attractions, restaurants, accommodations, and things...More

It was a gorgeous drive with lots of places to pull over & take photos & just enjoy being by the water. It was rather busy on Sunday.

Enjoy this lovely coastal drive. Enjoy stopping at various points and watching the fisherman snorkle. Continue along the drive and view the mansions.

It is a very beautiful scenic drive. Here ocean kisses the road. There are multiple stops where you can play with the ocean water. Try to stop and go and fill the nature.

Beautiful as it all is, the traffic can knock you out. It won't be a quick side detour from your trip to PA. If you have the time to add one night to your trip, I would suggest doing that rather than exhausting yourself by... More
