I like the looks of this bridge and find it very functional. My wife likes to run across it as part of her morning exercise. It has a constant slope that makes it a challenging running path.

This is a beautiful bridge. I remember how "scary" the old one was. I felt very safe. Charleston and the surrounding areas are on islands so you go across bridges all the time. It reminds me a little of the bridge in Savannah , GA.

The bridge was beautiful and can be seen from miles around. A little scary to drive on if your not a fan of big bridges though.

Very Cool, one of the most unique modern bridges I have seen. Highly recommended for travel between the peninsula and the Patriot's Point.

This would be Charleston's best landmark because you can see it from miles away. A beautiful structure, it dazzles in the sun as the wires seem to sparkle with water in the background.

Have seen and been over many bridges but this one is exceptional both in beauty and, of course, the great view of Charleston and it's harbor.

A marvel. easy entrance and exit. Easy to get to EastBay Road. Beautiful views.White cables caused some distraction to the point it was important not to focus on the cables, only the road

It is pretty to look at, and not a bit scary looking, as the original old bridge was. It is a 2.2 mile-long suspension bridge, like the Lenny Zakim Bridge over the Charles River in Boston.

Beautiful bridge - couldn't believe all the joggers/walkers on the bridge. Traveled to see Boone Plantation in Mt. Pleasant when we crossed this bridge.
