Saw the bridge from a distance. It is a nice looking bridge but can't understand why it is one of the must see in charleston.

This is an amazing archetectual phenomenon. It is amazing driving across, running/walking across or just observing it from a safe distance. A must see.

The Ravenel bridge is always fun to go over when we go from Charleston to Mt. Pleasant. It is a beautiful structure and it's fun seeing so many people enjoying the bridge - lots of walkers and runners on it enjoying the sun and breeze.

This bridge is a modern marvel. It is also quite artistic in design. It covers a large distance and just sparkles in the sunlight against the different shades of blue in the sky and water. Just viewing it from the land is cool, but driving on it is an experience, especially when you think about how it is constructed! Try... More

My husband, 16 year old son and I walked from the inn we stayed at in downtown Charleston, over the bridge and back. Our walk totaled about 8 and one-half miles. I am afraid of heights but felt secure enough to enjoy the view and the workout. Being in good physical shape and good shoes are a must.

We just drove over the bridge. It is definitely state of the art and eye appealing. Lots of walkers and joggers were going across the bridge. The price was right and the view outstanding.

Very cool architecture and a great site to see! You can see it from many different points in Charleston and can view it from underneath on several boat tours. Not sure I would make the 2 mile walk from one end to the other, but it may be something to look into!

You can't see the park from the bridge, so I would not have noticed the converted piers accessible from the Mount Pleasant area. We went in the late evening and it was well lighted and clean. Good view of the harbor area.
