Route 77, Rhode Island

(Scenic Drives of America Feature)

A country road complete with stone walls, farmstands, and ocean views.

Photo of the bucolic countryside in Little Compton, RI Old stone walls lining a winding country road, cool sea breezes coming through forests and meadows, farmstands and country stores popping up randomly throughout the countryside. Where is this peaceful spot? Vermont? California? Ireland? Nope. Try the southeast corner of Rhode Island. And meandering its way through this beautiful area is Route 77, a road that goes nowhere and everywhere at the same time.

From there, Route 77 perhaps is at its most scenic as it winds through the farmlands of Little Compton before ending at the remote fishing village of Sakonnet Point. Route 77 may only be about 15 miles long, but its beauty sticks with you long after you return home.
