Following the heat of Charleston summer afternoons, enjoying a picturesque sunset is the perfect way to end the day. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite places to explore and watch Charleston sunsets this summer.

202 McCants Drive. Well appointed in Mount Pleasant’s Old Village, this spacious home overlooks downtown Charleston with sweeping views from Fort Sumter to the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge. An open floor plan, elegant living areas and two wide porches are ideal for summer entertaining. Enjoy unparalleled sunset views from the private swimming pool and dock with floater and boat lift.

Pitt Street Bridge. The Pitt Street Bridge was built in Mount Pleasant in 1898 as a trolley bridge allowing passengers to and from Sullivan’s Island and closed in 1945 when the Ben Sawyer Bridge opened. Now pedestrians and cyclists can access the remaining part of the bridge via the Pickett Park Greenway and enjoy idyllic views of the sunset over the Cooper River and downtown Charleston peninsula.

106 Murray Boulevard. Given the unique positioning of the south-western facing double piazzas at the tip of Murray Boulevard, this stunning waterfront home offers the best perspective to enjoy Charleston harbor sunsets. Completely renovated in 2014, the spacious 6,550 sq. ft. home features exquisite details and a finished ground floor that opens to a lush private garden and patio.
