The city’s most well known attraction is found at the foot of the Arthur Ravenal Bridge that is called the Patriot’s Point. It is a known museum that features maritime and naval items particularly the World War II aircraft called as the USS Yorktown. Now the attraction is considered a museum ship while the bridge is a vast highway composed of eight lanes. The parks which can be found within the city come in wide varieties like beach parks, piers where you can fish, numerous boat landings, day and water parks, and even dog friendly parks where you can walk your pet dog without the leash. These parks are made available in Palmetto Islands, James Island, and North Charleston Wannamaker County. The James Island park has a climbing wall that is 50 foot high and has a cave that is bouldering. It is also the venue where their most popular Lowcountry Cajun Festival is held annually.
