Can't make a trip to Charleston without a visit to Waterfront Park. Grab a swing and watch the boats on the water, children playing in the fountain and the beautiful architecture of the city. Clean and well-maintained. Beautiful.

Walking around the city at night, we came upon this park. Vista is fabulous-ships and boats passing by, large swings to sit on, lovely grassy area, fountains on and many enjoying the spray, antebellum mansions in the background.

Wonderful place to go relax and take in Charelston's beauty. Fountain for the kids to play in or dip your feet and cool off during the hot summer months. Pier with swings to sit and realax while looking out onto the water as passing ships go by.

After a day at the market, we walked to waterfront park and enjoyed swinging on the family sized porch swings to rest and cool down before the walk back to our car.

Absolutely loved this place. It was really pretty and its a perfect spot for families. The pier is romantic at night and the view is just simply amazing.

There is a neat fountain that kids run through and there are swings to sit on-whole families fit on one. This morning there was a fishing camp fishing along the dock-one morning I got up early to watch the sunrise. Nice place!

As we were staying close by we took a wander down to the waterfront area. We enjoyed the views to FS & AR bridge. We sat in the shade on the swinging seat. A great place to chill in the shade
