This was well worth all the sweat to get from one side to the other and back. it's a beautiful bridge! You can see forever. Take a lot of water if you walk it in summer. I'm glad we walked it! The mile markers are well marked and it's very clean.

Thank John B

Great looking bridge. Our one regret is that we did not walk over it. If u like to walk or run strongly recommend it. There is a wide blocked off area to go across by foot

I drive it all of the time, being that I live here, but it is amazing to walk. Do it. Just bring a few bottles of water. The view is more than amazing.

The Arthur Ravenel Bridge is not really a destination that can be visited. Instead, it's a signature landmark that will be the backdrop of many pictures throughout the Charleston area. The cable-stayed bridge constructed in 2001 spans the Cooper River connecting Charleston with Mt. Pleasant to the west. It really is beautiful to see.

We crossed the Ravenel bridge two and three times going back and forth from Charleston, Isle of Palms, Sullivan Island and Patriots Point. We also saw it from Ft. Sumter, Waterfront Park and various ferries. There are no tolls. It's a free bridge to use.

The Ravenel Bridge commands the harbor and becomes the scenic backdrop for pics taken from many locations in and around Charleston. We like to walk the bridge near sunset. Park at the Mt. Pleasant end and walk to the middle. It will be WINDY. So dress accordingly and wear comfortable shoes. We have also viewed the bridge from the deck of the Carolina Belle, an interesting harbor cruise that usually goes under the bridge, although we have been on some trips where the boat just goes close to the bridge and turns back. Other great places to view the bridge include the outdoor deck of the Charleston Aquarium and the Patriot's Point.
