If you’re coming to one of our beach house rentals Charleston SC, chances are you’ll cross the Ravenel Bridge.

If you head downtown from your Charleston beach house (one of our Isle of Palms luxury rentals) it’s pretty much a given.  You’ll cross the Cooper River via this lovely structure.

It’s a local landmark that, thanks to visionaries like America’s Best Mayor Joe Riley, has become a beloved landmark.

The planners did it right.  (Thank you, Joe.)  They added a pedestrian and bike lane facing the Atlantic Ocean.

It’s a wonderful way to take in Lowcountry vistas and get some great exercise, to boot.  Plus you get all those lovely harbor breezes.

Side note: Of course our Isle of Palms vacation rentals have wonderful breezes, since most of our luxury beach house rentals SC are oceanfront.  You just step out onto the deck of your beach house Charleston and feel refreshed.

Walking or biking the Ravenel Bridge is a great outing for all ages staying in your luxury house on Isle of Palms.  If you do so, you’ll notice two of the preeminent sights to visit during a stay in one of our SC vacation rentals.

On the Mount Pleasant side, you’ll see the WWII aircraft carrier Yorktown and the Patriot’s Point Museum.  On the Charleston side, you can spot the SC Aquarium, the  premier aquarium in the state of South Carolina.


Charleston Waterfront pass and beach house rentals Charleston SC go well together

Well, these two institutions and must-see entities have teamed up to create a duo pass.  This special ticket will allow you entry to both places, as well as a super-cool harbor boat ride connecting the two.  It’s a great way to see two great sights and have a harbor trip while you’re at it.

It’s called the Charleston Waterfront Pass, and it’s available through the Charleston Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.  By the way, they’re a great resource for folks staying in one of our beach rentals Charleston.

You may start at either Patriot’s Point or the Aquarium, then travel to the other via the Charleston Water Taxi for a super fun full day.  If you prefer, you may also opt to visit them on separate days instead.

You can purchase the pass at any of these four locations near our beach house rentals Charleston SC:

  • Downtown Charleston at 375 Meeting St.
  • Kiawah Island at 4475 Betsy Kerrison Pkwy.
  • Mount Pleasant at 99 Harry M. Hallman, Jr. Blvd.
  • North Charleston at 4975-B Centre Pointe Drive

The pass costs: $52.95 for ages 13 and above, $38.95 for kids 6 to 12, and $26.95 for children 3 to 5.  Read more about it here.

So span the harbor and see great things on both sides, and on the way over to boot.  And remember, when you are looking for rental homes South Carolina, namely beach house rentals Charleston SC, to call EP.

All best,
