Awesome place to visit. We walked there and back & it was great. It was nice to walk the sea wall and all the houses close by were lovely.

Nice river view. Definitely a place to stop- Attraction was beautiful and breathtaking. Right near Riley Waterfront park. Very scenic and romantic. Definitely somewhere to experience the world of romance.

The view here is excellent of the harbor and Fort Sumter. The biggest negative is there are no public restrooms near here.

We went during evening hours, and the sunset was UNREAL. It was luckily a clear day, and the pink, orange and red sky was simply mesmerizing. There were even dolphins in the water! On the opposite street, the quaint and colorful little houses with their...More

Walk along the river any time. But I would not suggest after 11, just for safety's sake. The actual park area closes to keep the homeless from congregating around dark, not 5 PM.
