Rode bikes from Fort Sumpter to Fort Moultrie across the bridge. Stopped at the crest for a moment to take it all in. Amazing structure!

It's not enough that this bridge is really interesting to look at, it's also fun to cross. Car, bike, and/or walk across the bridge. Beautiful architecture combined with incredible engineering. The bridge spans the Cooper River and connects Charleston to Mt. Pleasant. Free to cross,...More

If you are physically up to a 2-1/2 mile walk up and down the bridge, very well worth it. We walked it around 10 a.m. on a beautiful day with blue skies and white clouds with temp under 80 degrees, lovely breeze all the way....More

Tried to ride a 1960's beach cruiser over this bridge was ready to pass out by the time we reached the high point. Great bridge with stunning views of harbor.

Beautiful bridge for biking, walking, running, or driving. It feels much safer than the bridge it replaced. Be sure to check it out when it's lit up at night.

This is an easy walk from either side. The views of the City are spectacular, and the entire waterfront scenery is very spiritually moving. I do it 2 to 3 times a week. It always "makes my day".

The Ravenel is NOT lovely when you're in bumper-to-bumper traffic but when you're driving west and the sun is setting, it's a beauty -- and it's even prettier from the water

I had seen pictures of this bridge many years ago and always wanted to travel across it. My husband and I drove to Charleston over the bridge and enjoyed the amazing views from this grandiose structure.
