“Beautiful walk!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

This is must-do when you're visiting Charleston. Beautiful views from the top of the bridge; an easy, gentle incline to walk. You see so much more walking than you do driving....and it's only about 2-1/2 miles each way. Park on the Mt Pleasant side...free on the road by the gas station, or there are plenty of meters for $.50/ hour.

“Charleston should be proud”
Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

The bridge is visible from all around Charleston. In a city where there is so much history and so much to see the bridge is truly a jewel in Charleston s crown. Has I am approaching Charleston its the first thing I see and it lets me know I have arrived. The view from and view of it is amazing

“stunning”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

I looked for excuses to go back and forth a few times on this bridge because it was so beautiful. Signs are very clear and the view is wonderful. First exit from Charleston leads to Patriots Point... a must see.

“great experiance”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

I must admit that I enjoyed the "old" Charleston bridges even though they could be terrifying to drive because of people who drive like idiots. But the "new" bridge is a delight, and a great visual as you drive from either side. You sorta get the feeling of "flying" with those beautiful suspension cables. Also, from so many places, the night scene of the bridge is truly beautiful. They Done Good!
