The most picturesque waterway in the Lowcountry. Revel in glorious sunsets over Charleston Harbor as you enjoy a stroll on the docks.

Great place to go for a walk on the creek. Shrimp boats galore & bars available if you want them. Family friendly to let kids get rid of some of that energy! Beautiful location!!!

My first trip to SC. It was a nice evening stroll for a lovely water view. People were friendly and it was nice to see. Glad I stopped and grabbed a drink at Muddy's.

This is the place to take a stroll before having dinner at one of the great restaurants at Shem Creek. Nice to check out the shrimp boats up close.

A nice long walk down a wooden pier. Has a shelter at the end. You can sit and watch the boats come in and out and the birds play in the water. It's walking distance to several restaurants. There are clean restrooms by the parking...More

There might be places to crab in the Charleston area but not right on Shem Creek near the hotel. The best source for that information would be South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.
