Explore The Sights Of Charleston

Life along Shem Creek is everything that's right about coastal South Carolina. Slip into the groove of shrimping and crabbing, pelican and dolphin spotting, and popping down to the dock to grab drinks with friends.

    Dozens of bars and restaurants line the banks of Shem Creek, each offering a laid-back atmosphere for dining, drinks and creekside socializing. Among our favorite spots for savoring fresh local seafood and ice-cold beer are Water’s Edge, Vickery’s, Red’s Ice House, and the Shem Creek Bar & Grill. Trust us, no trip at Shem Creek Inn is complete without a pub crawl or leisurely Sunday brunch along the creek.

    Downtown Charleston

    Located just five miles from downtown Charleston, Shem Creek Inn is the best of both worlds: offering easy access to the city’s historic charm and sophisticated style, combined with the low-key, come-as-you-are attitude of Mount Pleasant. Head to the city for an afternoon of shopping or a horse-drawn carriage tour, then return for a relaxed evening of blue crabs and beer on the Shem Creek Boardwalk.
