Toomer Creek winds through the heart of Mount Pleasant, flowing into the Wando River and eventually the Charleston Harbor. This tidal creek offers a variety of activities including fishing, boating, kayaking, and paddleboarding.
Tidal creeks are an integral part of coastal South Carolina ecosystems. These creeks usually reach from upland areas and increase in size until they join rivers, sounds, or harbors that ultimately connect to the ocean. In addition to providing food and refuge for fish, shrimp, and crabs, tidal creeks also protect adjacent lands from flooding.
There are many scenic creeks in Mount Pleasant, including beautiful Alston Creek pictured below.
