Brenton Point State Park Tips (2)

Brenton Point State Park

While you are driving along Ocean Drive you will find Brenton Point State Park. This park is quite beautiful with it's expansive open grounds and views of the ocean.

Ferni and I make it a point to visit this park at least every other time we visit Newport and especially when the weather is pleasant. Our last visit here was during an unseasonably beautiful November day, so we decided to take a nice drive along Ocean Drive enjoying the great weather and fantastic views of the ocean.

We spent a few hours just walking around the park and enjoying the spectacular views and each other's company.

To get to the park just follow Ocean Drive.

Brenton Point State Park

Brenton Point State Park is at the end of Ocean Drive. We drove out here on a beautiful October Day. I had never been to the Park before but Liz has been here before and raved about the views. The park has beautiful Ocean and Bay views. We spent some time walking around in the unseasonably warm weather and taking in the breathtaking views.
