Wonderful waterway where you can view dolphins up and down the creek, paddle boarders and canoers moseying along. Nautical scenery for just enjoying the summer breeze! no need to do anything but just be there and watch all the beauty of a little known place.

10 minutes from downtown, take the Ravenel bridge and Shem Creek is right where Vickerys, Reds, the Shelter and other restaurants are.
