<p>Pitt Street Bridge was once the primary route from Mount Pleasant to Sullivan's Island. But when the Ben Sawyer Bridge was complete, the Pitt Street route was abandoned.</p> <p>Now spanning just half the distance of the former bridge, Pitt Street Bridge is a pedestrian greenway that's popular with fishermen, crabbers, as well as cyclists and walkers.</p> <p>With a view of Peninsular Charleston and Sullivan's Island, it's a great spot to take in sunrises and sunsets. Kayakers can launch from the bridge, and pets are welcome.</p> <p>A bridge has stood in this location since before the Revolution. During the Civil War, the crew of the H.L. Hunley submarine crossed the bridge before test-diving the sub, which was the first combat submarine to ever successfully complete its mission.</p> <p>A trolley bridge was built in 1899, and a steel drawbridge was constructed for cars in 1929. The bridge was dismantled in 1945 and has since been used for recreational activities.</p>
