This is a short but very beautiful coastal drive along the Atlantic Ocean and Narragansett Bay. And Newport provides many wonderful opportunities to see unique treasures.

A wonderful scenic drive. The traffic is heavy in places but come for the beauty and the charm. If you are in a hurry take I-95.

From Westerly to Plum Point and Narragansett Bay, Routes 1 and 1A are filled with oceanside beauty. Nothing specific, except the smell and sight of the ocean and shore. Also, while I believe that you haven't really experienced the east coast until you've driven Rte 1, I also recognize that much of it is a traffic nightmare. This is just NICE. No huge tourist destinations, unless you turn toward Newport, but a really nice drive.
