Mount Pleasant is very pet friendly!
Remember to leash pets at all times and leave nothing behind but pawprints.

Shem Creek Park

Take a relaxing stroll on the Shem Creek boardwalks with your pup! The boardwalks overlook marshes, tidal creeks, and the beautiful Charleston Harbor. You are more than likely to see wildlife such as fiddler crabs, birds, fish, and possibly dolphins looking for a tastey snack from the fishing boats! Many of the nearby restaurants are dog-friendly as well.
