Great Walking Spots - The Ravenel Bridge

So today I crossed a bridge - literally!  The Ravenel Bridge in Charleston, SC is a great opportunity for burning a few calories.  Some bright people way back in the planning stages decided to add a pedestrian lane to the bridge to accomodate walkers, runners and bikers.  It makes for an interesting journey up and over the Cooper River.

I gotta tell you, the views are incredible.  You get a fantastic look at the skyline of Charleston, from up high.  You can see down the river to the ocean and watch freighters pass under you as you walk. 

The 5 mile round trip (shore to shore and back) took me about an hour and 15 minutes, even with the uphill portions.  So far it ranks as one of my favorite walking places and works well for keeping me on track when I travel.

If you get a chance to visit Charleston, SC, try to schedule in the "bridge".
