Sports & Recreation

For lovers of the outdoors, there are many options for fun adventures in the three-county region. From beach walking to kayaking through endlessly winding waterways, from bicycle rides to sunset sails, from kids splashing in water parks to adult birding excursions, there’s something for every level of athlete, explorer, or outdoor aficionado.

Where else can you hike the Palmetto Trail in the morning and surf at the beach in the afternoon, then take in a Riverdogs game while watching the sunset paint the Ashley River horizon? The annual Cooper River Bridge Run 10K inspires thousands of people to walk and run, and numerous organized bike rides, charity walks/runs, and water activities fill the calendar with fitness-focused activities.
