The views from this area are the best of any (in my opinion). I am so glad we stopped by here. The War memorial was so touching. The statue, the water feature, the pergola and the plaques in this memorial were very impressive. Because it's set off from the walkway, I can see how some people would miss it or just walk by. Stop by and see it! You will love it! And the views from this vantage point are gorgeous. As you walk out onto the pier from the park, you can get fantastic views of the Yorktown, of the marshy areas and beautiful homes to the right, the covered swings along the long pier, and looking up at the amazing Ravenel Bridge directly above you make this a must see. I took hundreds of pictures. It was quiet and not terribly crowded. I liked this Waterfront Park so much better than the Waterfront Park in Charleston. Speaking of which, you get an awesome view of the Charleston shoreline from this vantage point. Also, the restrooms at the Visitors Center were suprisingly fancy and pretty. There are so many things to see in this area. Plan to spend at least half a day and drive around to the different locations off of the roads. There is a marina (private) down at the end of the street with absolutely perfect spots to take pictures of the Yorktown, as well as the many hundreds of boats that line the shore. They give sailing lessons there, too. You will be glad you came to this area!
