I love walking through the riverfront. At night you'll hear musicians playing. Every time we visit its a new experience. It's really nice through the week and during the off season when the crowds are down. Great place to sit on the river and people watch. Plenty to eat and drink at local places. I don't suggest driving down to... More

Lots of shops of all sorts, eating places, from soda/drinks, candy stores, baked goods, chowders, to sit-down restaurants, great view of the river. One can see big container vessels and other ships, boats in the river. One can sign up for river tours with and without dinner. The weather was nice when we were there in the afternoon, so we...

Although there are a myriad of tourist "junk shops" this historic area affords visitors a chance to see fabulous architecture, some amazing antique shops and a couple of excellent eating places. This is not a glamorous place that rivals Paris or London but a part of American history that we should all be proud of. I would not recommend this... More

Came into town one night passing through to Charleston. Had a great time walking around and a great dinner. So many people on a Saturday evening in September. Great to see the area doing so well. Lots of bars and beat shops and so much history in this great town!

Nice restored riverfront. Typical tourist stores, but also some neat shops and places to eat. A lot of history in the architecture and great to see the ships go by while walking or relaxing along the riverfront.

My husband and I and our 4 young adult children visited for the day. We stayed for about 30 minutes. It was dirty, crowded, and full of junk souvenirs. People are not friendly. If I ever come back here I will do a lot more research to find something worthwhile to see and do!

Great waterfront with excellent restaurants, shops, tourist attractions, and bars. Beware, the waterfront street is cobblestone. I would not recommend high heel shoes. Some of the stairs going down to the waterfront are steep, but there are elevators available in some of the hotels.

I'm from Charleston, SC so riverfront/ waterfront parks are nothing new to me, yet this was still a beautiful place to walk around for a bit. There are tons of places to grab something to drink and if you make it down there in time you'll be sure to see a beautiful sunset. We watched a large container ship pull... More

This place is so pretty! My son loved to watch the ships and boats over the river. We walked part of it since it's long and he wasn't in a stroller. The shops are so pretty and the people was amazing (except for a non child friendly person that attended us at the visitors center) The street looks son pretty... More

Worth a stroll, but shops are a bit pricey and many sell the same touristy items. A few decent restaurants, but other felt like tourist traps and weren't great. I wouldn't make it priority, but stroll through if you have time.
