Fun to drive and see how the other half lives. Can stop at Benton Park and fly kites or picnic. Places to pull over and take pictures along the way.

It's a gorgeous drive, but be sure to pull over at one of the overlooks or parks, get out, sit on the rocks, and enjoy the breeze and views.

We rented bikes and rode from the mansions along this road, stopped at the Castle Hill Inn for refreshments and food. Takes about 3 hours total, longer than we thought and there are small elevation changes. Suggest bringing snacks for stopping to enjoy beaches and...More
