Our driver took us around on Ocean Drive and we were in awe of the beauty we saw. Such lovely beaches and homes. Sailboats were out as was a guy fishing. He caught a large fish but released it before I could get a picture.

Passing the mansions on Bellevue, you'll continue around the island to the rocky shores of Brenton Point State Park. Pull over where you first can and enjoy the ocean!

The scenes and the mansions along this route will have you saying "Wow!" as you drive along. Get an audio app to help you know what you are seeing.

Ocean Drive and the Cliff Walk were both amazing! Loved seeing the ocean waves crashing against the rocks. Peaceful and gorgeous views.

What a beautiful drive you don’t want to miss. You get to see some beautiful rocky coast with the waves crashing in. My favorite part was looking at all the gorgeous estates that line the drive and the ocean.

This is a good first stop to see Newport. We enjoyed the view into the past of the gilded age. Would make this my first stop prior to seeing the mansions.

We actually drove the 10-mile Ocean Drive twice. We enjoyed it both times but wanted more spectacular scenery. It doesn't come close to the 17-mile Drive in Pebble Beach, CA.
