They are the goofiest things I have ever seen and the best part is you have to wear helmets! Everyone stares at you when you drive by so we just started honking and waving to everyone. I laughed the WHOLE time we were driving around. My Dad and Anita loved them too! So they are great for the whole family!
I highly recommend renting these cars to tour Newport, I think it is the best way to see the town. They go pretty fast too! You can take them anywhere but highways and bridges (DUH!). It's $50 for the first hour and $35 for every hour after that.
You can take them around to see the mansions, pull over anywhere you want, park pretty much where ever you want. AMAZING!
