If you’ve been in Charleston for any amount of time, you know that the Ben Sawyer bridge walking path is one of the most used routes for walkers, runners, bikers, & even skaters.
Recently, the town of Mt. Pleasant announced they were closing the path for the next six months to install a new water line that would allow for cleaner, more sustainable water supply (mildly bothered by what the water source looked like before this). I digress. This route has hands down one of the most breath taking views of both the intercoastal water way and the sunrise/sunset. It also remains a drawbridge since its original completion in 1945 during WWII. How cool is that? While it continues to remain closed for a few more months, I was lucky enough to get waved through about two weeks ago for a sunrise run. My favorite spot to park is Publix (hello no parking tickets or towing) and then run across to touch the water on Sullivan’s Island. It doesn’t count as a “beach run” without doing so. If you have a little more time spend on Sullivan’s Island once on the other side, check out The Co-Op, Poe’s, Mex 1, and Home Team BBQ for some of my favorite foods and spots to hang.
