This is a photo of the Cooper River Bridge that connects Mount Pleasant, SC and Charleston, SC on Highway 17. We stayed at a motel in Mount Pleasant near the bridge.

My husband and I love Charleston, South Carolina! From our home it's about 3 hours away. It's the one place that you can go to for almost every kind of adventure.


Charleston has lakes, beaches, wonderful tours, golfing, history and let's not forget award winning cuisine!

This is our New Bridge which opened last week in Charleston, SC. It replaces the Cooper River Bridges which were built in 1928. We had a week long celebration and walked the bridge the first day it opened to walkers.
