  • This bridge is an awesome bridge to walk/run on. You see the cityscape along side the ocean. Dogs are not allowed because it is a long stretch to go without going to the bathroom...and it's meant to be clean. (But take your dog to the bridge park in Mount pleasant!)
  • Great view. There's a nice walk way the whole bridge. Great place to walk!
  • 2.5 mile one way, running and cycling trail is well maintainenced, excellent and unique view of pioneer point and charleston from the bridge.
  • Be careful. A lot of people to busy looking at bridge to stay in there lane.
  • I've lived in South Carolina since 2009! And my parents moved in to S. Carolina in 1998. That's like The early 2000s. I was COMPLETELY Sad that the bridges John P. Grace and the Silas N. Pearman bridge :( They were BOTH demolished in 2007. Others think that it was demolished in 2009. While Google wasn't released, many people use Yahoo!, Which is an internet search made in the 1990s, it still was the oldest website on this list. Now that we have cellular communication today, Google finally released it's search engine in 2005. This is the history of the bridge. The old bridges do NOT exist today. The Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge is located off of Exit 220 (If you're on I-26 East) It is also located off of Exit 220B (If you're on I-26 West) Part of I-26 Is followed by US-17. I-526 also surrounds by US-17. If you're looking someplace to move, Charleston SC should be your choice.
