Pickett Park and Pitt Street Bridge

East of the Cooper River, a few minutes away from the Arthur Ravenel Bridge, you will find Old Village Historic District in Mt. Pleasant. Pickett Park and Pitt Street Bridge are located on the south end of Pitt street in Old Village. Previously used to allow passage to Sullivan’s Island, the wooden fishing bridge now extends out to Cove Inlet.This is a wonderful spot to go after you enjoy a day kayaking out on Shem Creek or to watch the sunset before you go out to eat. The view from Pickett Park will take your breath away, as you watch the sunset over the Charleston Harbor and Intracoastal waterway. If you decide to go for sunset, bring bug spray or bug spray wipes (my personal preference). It can’t hurt to have it on you, but you’ll regret not having it if the bugs are out.
