This beautiful bridge overlooks the waterfront park. Named after a highway patrol officer, Richard Woods, who was killed in the line of duty in 1969, Woods Memorial Bridge is one of only nine moveable bridges left in South Carolina. Enjoy the soaring coastal birds, breathe in the salty sea air and watch as boats travel back and forth as you cross over this beautiful landmark.
