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.

If you are driving along the coast from Boston back to PA, stopping off in Newport, RI to see a mansion or two, grabbing a bite to eat downtown, and driving along Ocean Drive are a must. Newport will take you off the beaten path by about 45-60 minutes each way. Out of Boston I would recommend Route 3 down to the Cape Cod Canal where you can hit U.S. Route 6 heading West to I-195, and then get off on Route 24 just outside of Fall River, MA, and then take RI-Route 114 down to Newport. RI state highway 114 will take you right to downtown Newport and the signage is quite good for locating directions to Ocean Drive. When leaving, look for signs for the Newport Bridge over to the Jamestown Bridge to catch U.S. Route 1 on the west side of Narragansett Bay, which will take you down along the coast of Rhode Island and then into Connecticut.
