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.
