Here’s a rookie mistake to avoid: don’t show up at Ocean Drive in the middle of the day, crawling along at 15 miles per hour behind a queue of other shutter-snapping tourists. Instead, plan your visit a little earlier. The real magic of Ocean Drive happens at dawn, before the sun gets too hot, and you’ve got the road all to yourself. Locals like to start at Bellevue Avenue and work their way east (leaving time for a stopover at Brenton Point, a popular kite-flying spot with several hiking trails), eventually winding up at Castle Hill Inn for a well-deserved coffee.
