“Very beautiful bridge”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

This is the most interesting bridge I've ever seen, I am bridge phobic but still could see the beauty in this bridge. It is very high and has a pedestrian walk way that has amazing views

“Walk or drive”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Promoting a bridge as a sight to see may seem a bit of a stretch...but this is one mega bridge...offering an unparalleled panoramic view of Charleston. Its a huge walk to the top of the span...suggest you drive it before deciding to walk it

“Great Bridge”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Excellent walking path and bike path. Wonderful way to see the harbor. If staying in Charleston, take a stroll across the bridge at sunset or sunrise, you cannot go wrong.

The annual bridge run, going over the Ravenal Bridge "New Cooper River Bridge" is a must. It’s a great way to check off the 10K run / walk on your bucket list.

“Enjoyed Our Bike Ride O'er the Bridge”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

My boyfriend and I rented bikes somewhere near the base of the bridge and scaled the top near dusk. Upon arrival at the top I wanted to know who Arthur Ravenel Jr. was and why the bridge was named after him. I found only a plaque with the names of the contributors but nothing of the man in question. I found that odd.
The ride back down to the base of the bridge was exhilarating! We made good time. The wind blowing in our faces. Watching the city lights come on as the sun went down. It was a wonderfully fun experience that I would love to repeat.

Great place to exercise and sight see the city of Charleston from above the bridge. Beautiful view of the harbor.
