Shem Creek

Just off of the bridge as you make your way into Mount Pleasant you'll find the beautiful and scenic Shem Creek. With multiple restaurants on both sides, guests have lots of options when it comes to food and drink. Shem Creek is fun for all ages, so whether you are on a date, solo, or want to enjoy a nice family dinner, all are welcome. Just as most places in Charleston, dogs are welcome at most places, as long as they are leashed. The sunset is beautiful from any of the outdoor patios, or even taking the wooden walkway through the marsh!

Waterfront Park

Want to end a long day of exploring Charleston with a nice breeze and beautiful views? There's lots of green area, perfect for dogs and children as well as a boardwalk that offers swings and benches, perfect for enjoying a beautiful sunset.

Bowen's Island Restaurant

If you're looking for one of the most beautiful sunset spots in Charleston, my personal favorite is right outside of one of Folly Beaches most popular restaurants. This community style restaurants atmosphere is entirely welcoming and fit for parties of all sizes. Seriously, the sunset from their dock or the beach where they send kayaks off will take your breath away!

Rooftop Bar at Vendue

The perfect rooftop for an amazing view of both the water and historical downtown Charleston. Not only does it offer a fantastic view of the sunset but also offers cocktails, food and music!

Folly Beach

Located 11 miles from Downtown Charleston is one of the more popular beaches, Folly beach. There are plenty of places to grab some food or a drink, as well as finding the perfect spot on any of their public beach accesses to watch the sunset perfectly.
