  • I got to see this bridge from below and above while driving across it. The structure is architecturally stunning and I love how it adds to Charleston's beauty. 
  • Love walking and running the bridge. Quite a workout with the incline!! The annual bridge run is a blast too!! 
  • Awesome experience for the whole family. Make sure to visit the USS Yorktown and the USS Laffey. The Vietnam experience was interesting as well.
