Great for walkers and runners or just for the beautiful view. Make sure you bring your water bottle. There is plenty of public parking under the bridge

Really pretty to walk across this as the sun is setting although it is a really long walk. It looks lovely when its dark and its lit up at night.

So much better than the one that used to be there! Traffic on the bridge still gets a little heavy during rush hour.

My group parked at the end of the bridge on the Mt.Pleasant side and walked part of the way across. It was good exercise, provided us with fresh air and spectacular views of the sunset.
