Great walk! Great way to get a little exercise while seeing the Charleston Harbor. We walked from the Mt. Pleasant side to the second suspension arch. We could see everything including the Yorktown, Fort Sumter, the battery and downtown Charleston. You can walk the whole thing and back if you like but we were in a time crunch. Dogs aren't... More

We drove over this beautiful bridge on the way to Boone Hall Plantation. The view was great!! If we were to go back, I would recommend riding a bike or walking over the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge to enjoy all the beauty!

One of the amazing suspension bridges. In my mind nearly as wonderful as the golden gate. Go slow views are amazing.

This is a magnificent bridge. It is beautifully constructed. It stands high above the Cooper River. The driving lanes are wide and in good repair. It has a 2.7 mile pedestrian lane for those who would like to traverse it on foot or by bike. The lane is wide enough for bikers or serious runners to pass other pedestrians. It's... More

Opened in 2005, this is third longest suspension bridge in western hemisphere. A elegant, beautiful engineering masterpiece. And, a pleasure to view from any perspective.

We used it and walked it to get to Patriots Point on our trip to Charleston. One of the more stunning man-made features you will see in the area. Interesting note, we were told this bridge replaced one that scored a 4...out of 100! So not falling in while using this one was a definite plus.

We found ourselves using the bridge on numerous occasions and it was easy to navigate very wide and good signage. Its design was stunning. Both on the approach to the bridge and while on it. Bring your camera. Nice to see a walk way on one side which was always in use by many runners.

I have made many visits to the Memorial park for visits with family, by myself or to festivals., i.e Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront park. This is where you also find the path to access the pedestrian and /or bike paths to the top of the Ravenel bridge. I traveled between Boston MA and Charleston every month for a year and... More
