Our GPS got us most of the way here, and then we just watched for signs. Be sure to look for the pedestrian crossing as the parking is immediately to the left and the bridge is down a short flight of stairs on the right. This is only about 15 minutes away from Campbell's Covered Bridge which is a beautiful... More

The bridge offers a sublime view of the waterfall, and the bridge, like most every block of downtown Greenville is patrolled by some of the most creative and demanding homeless people I have ever encountered. After realizing that most of the restaurants were sinfully overpriced, I spent much of my dining budget giving the homeless people enough cash to have... More

I haven't been in this part of the country all that long a time, and little by little I've been trying to learn more and more of its local history. On a trip to have a look at Tryon, I decided to detour and have a look at the oldest bridge in South Carolina. It was a longer detour than... More

We only had a short time to explore & the hotel concierge told us to see the bridge if nothing else & she was right. It was EXTREMELY windy that day, but other than that it was really nice. Very relaxed atmosphere. Lots of people enjoying area, children, dogs, bicycles, etc... Beautiful place to relax & enjoy.

This is a wonderful place to take photos. Its great for background shots as well as wedding pictures. The history of this area is astounding. I'm not going to spoil it for you....just make sure you read the signage while you are there. Make a good spot for a picnic too!

The Poinsett Bridge is a hidden gem in SC. The architecture of the bridge is beautiful and the area is great for exploring.

A tiny remnant of history, but beautiful setting, nice trails, pretty streams, decent parking. Very close to Restaurant 17 for a simple lunch or fancy dinner!

Greenville, South Carolina has been "born again". I left there in 1967, and I am in awe of the outstanding development that has taken place. This bridge and the surrounding area should be on all visitor's "Must See" list. You will love it !
