Park on the Cooper River
Charleston's Waterfront Park has a great path along the river, ample benches both stationary and swinging, and fountains that are open for kids to splash around.

Waterfront Park and Pineapple Fountain
I don't know how during my many trips to Charleston that I kept missing getting to see the Pineapple Fountain at Waterfront Park. This year however, we found it and spent a relaxing evening under the trees watching the sailboats bobbing on the waters and children playing around the fountain. Sunset began to cast it's evening glow around the park, casting shadows on the lovely old homes across the street as jazz music from nearby lulled us to relax and just sit in the cool breeze drifting off the waters and under the trees. People walked their dogs, lovers held hands and others just sat under the shade as we breathed in the sea air and listened to the city as it began it's evening promenade.
