Fresh Things To Do

Featured Activity


  • Charleston Waterfront Park

    Charleston Parks Conservancy protects and maintains Waterfront Park, a 12-acre coastal green space that runs along half a mile of the Cooper River. Visitors can watch sailboats on the horizon from the comfort of an old-fashioned bench on the harbor.

    Swing on the pier. Swinging benches are positioned in various places along the waterfront. Stop to rest your feet and admire the view.

    Take a stroll. Waterfront Park covers more than 1,000 feet of coast and is loved by locals and visitors alike for its walkways, ideal for a leisurely stroll with loved ones.

    Splash fountain and Charleston Pineapple Fountain. Off of Concord Street, the young and young at heart beat the Lowcountry heat by splashing in this cool fountain. Nearby, the Charleston Pineapple Fountain is also a perfect place to dip your toes.

    Get online. In a nod to technology, the entire park features complimentary access to WiFi courtesy of Google and the Charleston Digital Corridor. Upload your Instagram snaps of the beach in real time.
