While this beautiful bridge is officially named the Ravenel Bridge, it’s commonly called the Cooper River Bridge. One of the longest cable-stayed bridges in the world, it presents a defining image for the Lowcountry. Connecting Mt. Pleasant to Charleston (both population booming areas), the eight lanes on the bridge were designed to serve the region far into the future. In addition to its visual beauty, one of the best features of the bridge is the bike/pedestrian lane. Added late in the design phase, this lane has not only given bicyclists a way to commute across the Cooper River, it has proven to be one of the most popular places to run, bike and walk in the Charleston area. The views of Charleston Harbor are also truly spectacular. Another claim to fame is it being the main attraction in the enormously popular Cooper River Bridge Run.
