Beautiful Area

Definitely a nice walk and scenic oceanfront area. Plenty of area benches or trees for shade. Great area to just sit and look out at the water

Nice little spot to take a stroll after lunch/dinner on East bay or at fleet landing. There is a beautiful park lined with Oak trees and fountains with a broad walk along the water. You can also catch a glimpse of the Arthur Ravenel Bridge.

Great place to stroll and sit underneath the beautiful trees and take in the harbor. Worth a visit when you are in Charleston.

My wife and I were walking all over downtown Charleston and one of the attractions was the waterfront park. Its easy to find, about a block and a half off East Bay Street and right on Charleston harbour. It runs for a few blocks along the water. The Pineapple Fountain is located here and is a great photo op. Another... More

This is a beautiful waterfront park with a number of fountains and places to sit and enjoy the view across the Cooper River. The view across the river to the USS Yorktown in spectacular. It is an easy walk to the park from many of the places to stay in downtown Charleston.

Relax amongst the waters edge and experience the sites and sounds of the waters edge that many people go to see the bridge and mingle along.

Stopped here after checking out rainbow row. It's a beautiful view of the bridge and the water. Great place to walk around. Luckily the weather was great so it was a nice place to kill some time.

This is something you can probably do on your own as a tourist in downtown without paying for a guide, Kinda hard to miss on the waterfront. Nice to sit in the swings and and feel the ocean breeze. Good place for any person, any gender or age to go at any time. And when done, there are ice cream... More

My girlfriend and I had planned a girls weekend for some time in Charleston. It was wonderful and we were able to walk most places we planned to visit. Riley Waterfront Park was close enough to the Open Air Market to walk and just enjoy the sights and sounds. I would recommend it and go there again.
