Free & cheap for our Bucs: Pitt Street Bridge

Pitt Street Bridge, located in Mount Pleasant only a few miles from Sullivan’s Island Beach, is the perfect place for a picnic or night away from campus for Charleston Southern University students.

Formerly a trolley bridge, Pitt Street Bridge was redone to provide locals a place for relaxation. The bridge has benches, fishing spots and even water fountains for dogs. The view overlooks the water in front of downtown Charleston with the famous Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge on the right side. 

The bridge is closed to cars and provides the best seat to watch beautiful Charleston sunsets. Students can have a relaxing evening with friends while surrounded by families and dogs from the local community.

Pitt Street offers a quiet spot for CSU students to do homework, hang out with friends, eat a pizza or to just get off campus for a change of scenery.

With the beach only a short drive up the road and the restaurants in Mount Pleasant nearby, the bridge is in the perfect location for students looking for something free to do with friends.         

The spring semester is quickly coming to a close and with finals right around the corner, students should take advantage of the beautiful and free spots tucked around the greater Charleston area.
