We visited the Waterfront park as a part of Charleston in the Nutshell walking tour. Beautiful boardwalk is located next to the water taxi pier and is a popular tourist attraction site on the Charleston harbor. The famous Pineapple fountain and Vendue fountain situated on the park grounds. On a sunny day you can see Fort Sumter from the boardwalk.
Great place to go with the family to see the Charleston waterfront. Kids love playing in the fountain! The swings are nice to sit and relax. Only downside is the sewage smell.
