What to Do at the Mount Pleasant Waterfront Park

Go Fishing

Stretching 1,250 feet into the Charleston Harbor, the Waterfront Park pier offers one of the best fishing spots in the area. Feel free to bring your own rods and gear, or you can rent rods and purchase bait at the pier. Daily fishing fees are $5 for adults, $3 for seniors, $4 for active military, and $4 per person for groups of 10 or more.

Enjoy a Date

With sweeping views of the water and that distinctive and delightful ocean smell, the Mount Pleasant Waterfront Park provides the perfect setting for a romantic date. Stroll along the scenic paths surrounded by swaying palm trees or relax on one of the pier’s bench swings as you watch boats pass by in the Harbor. If you visit the park during dusk, you’ll likely catch one of the most magnificent Charleston sunsets!

Attend a Fun Event

The pier offers a variety of fun events throughout the year ranging from fishing tournaments to live music concerts. Visit the pier website to learn about all upcoming events! You’ll find plenty of parking in the lot across from the park, but during big events, the lot can get busy. We recommend arriving early!

Bring the Whole Family

Shaded by the Ravenel Bridge, the park playground is the perfect spot to bring the kids. You’ll also find plenty of grassy space to relax or run around and restrooms located just across the park. For a special treat, stop in the River Watch Cafe for some tasty soft serve!

Snag a Souvenir at the River Watch Gift Shop

Aside from ice cream, the River Watch Cafe and Gift Shop features a range of clothing, local jewelry, souvenirs, snacks, and beverages. It’s a great place to find a Charleston-themed t-shirt or handmade mug to take home with you to remember your trip!
