Nice stroll on the Pier. Didn't eat at any of the restaurants but the view of the harbor was beautiful and peaceful.

When I photograph birds, the last thing I want is to be under-lensed--meaning the birds are tiny specks. At Shem Creek--I found myself wanting LESS lens much of the time. When the shrimp boats come in, seafood isn't all they bring along for the ride. Egrets, Pelicans, Herons and gulls flock to the pier and the boats and couldn't care... More

This is a short, but excellent walk through the estuary banks of Shem Creek. Parking is free and so is admission. The views are beautiful, both seaward and across the banks. Working shrimp boats glide through the channel.

We enjoyed walking on the Bridge in Shem Creek Park specially at sunset and a full moon night. You see all the fishermen boats at a distant. It is worth the visit.

This is a great place for relaxing and even better to get some really good pictures. You can see shrimp boats, fishing boats, and beautiful sites of the marshes.

awesome park in the middle of mass confusion. Long boardwalk with safety railings so the little ones can run ahead. Areas where you can get within 6 inches of the marsh and see all sorts of nature. Can't wait to stroll around again.

We stumbled across this free park when we were on a drive while visiting Charleston last week. We parked and were surprised that there was not a charge for parking. There are clean restrooms with hot water that make it easy to change babies and toddlers. The park consists of long elevated walkways with safe railings so that children can... More

Go to one of the restaurants in the area for a drink at happy hour. Sit overlooking the water and watch the dolphins surfacing in the inlet, with the sun setting on the many boats. Perfect.
