“Elegant bridge, caught a rainbow on the way, but watch your lanes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Beautiful bridge connecting Charleston and Mt. Pleasant. Looking at it was a joy, especially when a rainbow appeared as we were crossing. But you need to make sure you are in the correct lanes to get to your destination, and it may require that you cross traffic fairly quickly...so watch the signs, too!

“"The low country view"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

The view of the area is wonderful from the bridge. An easy walk "up". Maybe a little noisy with the traffic. The park below at Patriot's point offers a jumping off point(not literally) for the walk or cycling over from Mount Pleasant to Charleston. Lunch is available near by at (my favorite) 'The Boulevard Dinner" on Coleman Ave.

“Spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

I have been to Charleston about 5 times in the past year and have wanted to walk this bridge. It is a beautiful bridge with spectacular views. I walked it with a friend in mid July. Even though it was quite warm at the base, there was a nice breeze toward the top. I am a senior and it was a long walk, but a gentle slope made it quite enjoyable without being too strenuous. I would highly recommend this walk.

“Run”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Saw a sign at the Hotel I stayed at offering a 'Run" on the bridge so at 8:00am I joined a few hundred people are partook in the run. It was awesome, the bridge is clean.

“It's a bridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

It's a bridge, but a cool-looking one! There is a running/walking path on the side, so I'm sure it has a fantastic cross-breeze, even in the hot humid summer time!
