I travel this bridge each time I get a chance to go to Charleston and it is fabulous! I love how it can be seen from so many places in Charleston or Mt Pleasant. I was walking at Shem Creek Park and looked over & could see the bridge. So beautiful, especially at night with the lights.

Awesome cable-stayed bridge that even a non-engineer/architect would love. If you're in area cross by vehicle or get some exercise and walk across it.

We always enjoy the trip across the bridge which is very impressive. If you are brave you can run across the bridge as it has well defined sidewalks but be warned it is steep.

It was a nice bridge but I find it sad this is the #1 attraction for the City. Charelston has more to for such as the City Market and the history behind it or the historic downtown itself.

Didn't get a chance to walk over the bridge as it was way too hot and ran out of time. Will definitely next visit. Got some great pictures though.

My husband and I loved walking the bridge. The views and the experience itself are very memorable. We parked at the gas station and had no issues.

Make sure you walk in the pedestrian lane, see if you can find 7 church steeples, and take a bottle of water with you.

I go over this bridge almost everyday, and the view never gets old! I walked on it a couple times and it was a great workout for my legs because of the incline. I highly suggest walking on the bridge when visiting charleston

We drove over this bridge and admired from afar. This is a beautiful bridge and a must see. Traffic is heavy which actually allowed us time to admire its stature.
