One of the highlights of the area is the abundance of outdoor recreation opportunities. Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park and Patriots Point (home of the USS Yorktown) offer breathtaking views of the harbor and downtown Charleston and are popular spots for events, picnicking, fishing, and relaxing.
Once a shrimping lane, picturesque Shem Creek Park is another local favorite, with a boardwalk and plenty of restaurants offering fresh seafood, stunning sunset views, and daily dolphin sightings. Palmetto Islands County Park has hiking and biking trails, kayak rentals, a water park, and a dog park. The iconic moss-draped oak allée and history of Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens draw tourists, residents, and filmmakers (most recently, The Notebook). Several annual festivals and concerts take place on the lush grounds.
