Starting out from Charlestown, Rhode Island, this 174 mile coastal road trip really does include the best of New England fishing villages, pristine beaches, museums and historic homes. It’s pretty flat and low so easy to ride, but that’s only a good thing, you’ll be far too busy gawping around. For one of the best views on the Bay Loop stop off at the Coast Guard Restaurant in Narragansett and check it out from the observation deck . . . awesome.
