If you are looking for a beautiful and peaceful walk, a place to relax, and enjoy the outdoors with cool breeze, the Pitt Street Bridge is the perfect spot for you. The Pitt Street bridge is a historical landmark and is located in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. The Pitt Street Bridge is narrow and has been long considered as a linear park. It was once a trolley bridge used to cross the Charleston harbor from Mount Pleasant to the beach of Sullivan’s Island. The bridge was built in 1898 as a trolley bridge and was mainly made up of wooden planks; later in 1923 the bridge was widened and replaced with concrete. The bridge offers great views of Charleston Harbor and surrounding areas. This place is a popular spot for walking, fishing, biking, kayaking, bird watching, and photography.
