“great walk/run with views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

listed as the number one tourist attraction/thing to do in charleston…it is beautiful with awesome views. there is a dedicated walking/biking/running lane which is separated from the bridge traffic. we run the bridge once a week and walk it every time we have visitors from out of state.

“Pretty and nice to walk across!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The new bridge is a very attractive addition to the Charleston skyline. People use it to walk across all the time and they have a dedicated walking lane..a nice view of Charleston especially if a cruise ship happens to be in.

“Great place to ride bikes and/or walk”

Just pay attention to your surroundings, which lane you should travel, and think before zoning out with earphones.

“A nice view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

I regularly run the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge - and it's great for bikers and walkers too! The view you get from the bridge is stunning and very scenic, and it's one of the only ways you can get an incline workout in Charleston. It's a little noisy because of the cars, and can be windier - so dress accordingly. But it's great to do solo or with friends.

“Cool Design - A "Stayed" Bridge”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

The Ravenel Jr. Bridge is beautiful to view and drive across -- but can't begin to compete with the historical sites of Charleston. That said, it does demand your attention and stands as an outstanding example of what can happen when great engineering combines with beautiful design.
