As we drove across the bridge we were amazed at how difficult it must have been to build over the water. Oh what a beautiful design as a back drop to the city!

It is one of the most beautiful bridges to see and travel over. It is like a fabulous weave of fibers.

Finally biked it for the first time today, but have made the traverse on foot numerous times. Great views, amazing architecture, and the protected pedestrian/bike area is a much appreciated and well used amenity. Good parking on the Mt. Pleasant side of the bridge underneath the base. Takes a little hunting to find it, but once you know where it... More

We crossed this bridge on our way to Patriots' Point. It is beautiful and if you are up to it, you can walk across it.

This bridge makes for fantastic pictures and views over the Charleston Harbor. While walking it can be a bit daunting, the views at the top are spectacular. While I can't endorse taking pictures while driving to anyone, you can get some great shots while going over the bridge if you are a passenger :). Simply put, walk the bridge if... More

Are you kidding? People go all the way to Charleston to see a bridge? Maybe because I'm African American, but there were 100 other historical sites to see more interesting that this. It's literally just a bridge. There's one just like it 2 hours away in Savannah. I was right there with my cell phone and didn't even feel compelled... More

On my last morning in Charleston, I rented a bike from The Bicycle Shoppe on Meeting Street to take a quick ride over the bridge. (I recommend the Shoppe -- rentals are $7/hour as of Dec. 2014.) It took me just around an hour to get from the Shoppe and back, and it was well worth it. The bridge is... More

This Bridge was newly constructed. It is very beautiful specially impressive when lit at night as viewed at a distance.

Love this bridge - and every time we drive over it, I am in awe of its structure and design! The views of it from afar are equally as stunning!
