THis is a nice venue especially during festivals, etc. The Do Wop and Rod festival will be coming soon and will showcase cars along the river. During the summer , free live music events happen every Friday night. Across the street from a Courtyard Hotel

The best to do is walk on the upper rampart which shaded and the sidewalk is in better shape. This is very thin and not many trees. Their is a pavilion to listen to live music and that is the best bet.

I've attended two weddings here. The light reflected on the water during the ceremony and really added a special romance to the atmosphere. It's in the middle of downtown Charleston. One of my favorite places to pray.
