It's a marvel of architectural design. Whether you're walking, running, riding, you just have to try it. Going over the bridge and being between Mt. Pleasant and Downtown Charleston is so beautiful, especially at night when all you see are the lights and the stars... I can't explain, it's just beautiful. Definitely bring a sweater if it's chilly, or if available, someone else to keep you warm.

The bridge is... a bridge. Rating it as an individual attraction, it is "average." There are cooler and less cool bridges out there. On the other hand, if you are on the waterfront at the aquarium, a restaurant on the water, or on the walkway off of Vendue Range Street, the bridge is very attractive. Particularly at night, I would agree with a recommendation to take photographs of the bridge. But from another location.

To fully enjoy the bridge take a boat cruise first then go land side to drive or walk the bridge for a whole different perspective.

What a beautiful bridge. You can also walk across the bridge. You will see ships moving under it. Right near the bridge you can visit an aircraft Cartier.

While in Charleston we biked across the Ravenel Bridge to Mt. Pleasant. There is a separate lane for walkers/runners and bikers, so it is very safe. The view from the top is of the shipyards and Patriot's Point. It is about 2 1/2 miles one way. We continued to Sullivans Island and Isle of Palm. A good part of this was bike paths - on the part that wasn't we used the sidewalk which did not have a lot of people on it.
