I know you may be thinking "It's just a bridge" but this is much more than that. I found myself captivated by it both times - while driving across in our car, and underneath while on the Schooner sunset sailing tour. Ironically, when we were leaving to go home, I made a wrong turn and had to drive across it... More

What a beautiful, functional bridge. It is about 2 1/2 miles long and can be seen from many venues around the Charleston area. For a real treat, talk a scenic walk across it.

I really do not know how to rate a bridge but this one is really beautiful. If you can drive over it at night to see the lights. During the day you can see the entire harbor and the USS Yorktown tied up in Mt. Pleasant.

Every time I travel along this bridge I marvel at the beauty and engineering of it. Certainly one if the iconic suspension bridges in the U.S.

A very easy drive with little confusion at both ends as to what lanes go where. Not nearly as scary as a metal decked bridge.

Roughly 3 miles each way with spectacular views. Somewhat noisy and can be windy. Great way to examine up close a "new" cable suspension bridge free of charge!
