We really enjoyed walking around the waterfront park and swinging on the huge porch swings. Our hotel shuttle picked up and dropped of from this location.

Great place to people watch, to relax, and just enjoy a beautiful day. Plenty of parking and places to sit. Lots of surrounding shops and restaurants to visit, all within walking distance, short drive, or horse-drawn carriage!

This is a great place to spend several hours in the swings watching the ships come in and out. What a great place to just chill and do some people watching. Can't wait to go back.

Love the swings and beautiful views! Make sure you take a few moments to sit in the huge "porch swings". If you have kids with you, bring swim suits and the kids can play in the water fountain area. Keep an eye out for Dolphins!

Great view and comfortable swings in the shade. The fountains were beautiful and a good place to cool your feet after a long walk.

A lovely place to stroll and take in the point where the ocean joins the Ashley River. It has a feel for the old south as you stroll along the pier. There are benches you can sit on in the sun and in shade. Walk all the way out and watch the barges as they enter and leave the river.... More
