Intersection of Pitt Street and William Street, Mount Pleasant, SC

Once the main connector between Mount Pleasant and Fort Moultrie on Sullivan’s Island, the Pitt Street Bridge today is a beautiful oasis for those looking to enjoy a view of Charleston’s famous salt marshes during a workout. When the new bridge was built to connect Sullivan’s Island to the main land, the Pitt Street Bridge was abandoned and later converted into a greenway that is enjoyed by cyclists, walkers, crabbers, fishermen, and kayakers. Although the bridge itself is just half a mile long, it is truly a spectacular addition to a run or ride through Old Towne Mount Pleasant, which visitors pass through to get to the recreation area. Pets are welcome, and kayakers can put their boats into the water from the nearby ramp. There is a water fountain in the park and ample seating to enjoy the views, although there are no bathrooms. The scenery absolutely cannot be overstated, so make a trip to Pitt Street Bridge!
