Over the Ravenel Bridge from Charleston, off Coleman Boulevard at Shem Creek where the shrimp boats are docked, visitors can stroll a 2,200 foot (670 meter) boardwalk to view 43 acres (17 hectares) of pluff mud, Hummock Island and Charleston Harbor. The walkway splits into two, one path leading to the commercial docks and the other to the floating kind for those who wish to dine by boat. The neighborhood is noted for its excellent seafood restaurants, marinas, nature tours and hotels. Visitors who come by car will find ample free parking and public restrooms. This is a great opportunity to take a close look at working boats, dine at one of the popular joints or purchase the day's fresh catch.
