This place is beautiful, simply beautiful. I go heed every time I visit Charleston. The atmosphere is wonderful and the sea breeze is amazing. Often times, you may catch a glimpse of a dolphin swimming in the water. The boats are also fun to watch, especially when a cruise ship is setting sail.

A nice setting to just relax and enjoy the waterfront while between stops for eating, shopping, and tracing history

It was a wonderful day with a nice cool breeze to visit the Waterfront Park. We enjoyed the large swing - walked out to the water - saw a dolphin and got a great picture of it! Beautiful areas of Charleston!

My husband and I went to Charleston for our honeymoon. We stayed right in downtown a few blocks away from the Waterfront Park and we made the walk almost every day. It was so nice and clean! A very relaxing place to go and look out at the water. There are swings on the pier and plenty of seats. There... More

I stumbled on the park after having dinner and walked along the promenade, which is almost as nice as the one in Santa Monica. Beautuful trees, shrubs, fountains and people watching make for a pleasing stroll.

We walked around the park but spent most of the time near the play fountains. What fun and what a great idea. I'm in a wheelchair but managed to get under the spray that various children shot everywhere. What a relief on a very hot day. The park is beautifully laid out. The only problem for me was, it was...

For a small price view the entire Charleston harbor. Then you can use the tickets to travel like a taxi all day long so keep your tickets. Nice quiet and peaceful sail around and get drop off at the best restaurants and great for family and couples.

Being surrounded by the ocean and the fountains makes this a perfect place to relax after walking around. The houses alongside are absolutely gorgeous and it's not far to walk to and from.

We were in Charleston in July so it was very hot and humid. We stopped here after getting a gelato for a little break. We found a bench in the shade that looked out over the water. Great view to relax to for a bit! There were tons of people there and lots of kids playing in the fountain. I... More

This is where you can see the famous Pineapple Fountain in Charleston. I loved walking through the archway of trees along the path. A great sight to see.
