If your going to Charleston do not miss this place.. It is good for evening walk.. I love to spend hours here.. Make sure that you come early to get parking spot.. No entrance fee.. If you are a nature lover either see sunrise or sunset here.. The pineapple fountain looks awesome in sunset.. The view is breathtaking.
Such a beautiful spot in Charleston! As Hurricane Dorian was approaching the coast of Charleston I decided to go downtown and caught some beautiful photos as Dorian was off of our coast. If you’re ever in Charleston as a tourist come to waterfront park! It’s beyond amazing.
