Do just a bit of reading on this area before you visit, then you will understand the significance of the area you are walking through. Battery was quite nice with some beautiful homes to see. Breeze was nice on a hot August day. Clear view of Fort Sumter and the many sailboats Iin the bay. If you walked down the... More

When the weather is cooler this is a historic and beautiful walk with views of the river and mansions lining the battery. You can set your own pace on this relaxing and safe walk.

Full of history and a lot of shade. Great space for taking a break, having a picnic, or just sitting on a bench. The sounds of the surrounding water bring added peace. There are several statues and such to stop and enjoy. This is one of our favorite places to go when friends come to visit.

Walking through the old historic district with the antebellum mansions that take your breath away was worth every step even though it was hot. We should have allotted more time to the area and walked each street and stopped to see more of the houses. One thing that surprised us was the closeness of the houses. Here are the monster... More

Pirates, Civil War Heroes, and lots of history is located in this area. It is a nice walk along the water, beautiful trees and homes. You can enjoy walking here any time during the day or night. Parking can be an issue at times-especially if you cannot parallel park.

Had always heard of the battery but never visited. Glad I took the time to visit. The cannons that guarded the area are really cool. The few monuments are very cool to look at and read. It is just a beautiful place to take in the view.

My wife and I spent most of our mornings on a recent visit to Charleston walking along the Waterfront Park and then through Battery and White Point Gardens, while sipping our coffee. This is a very enjoyable, self paced, safe and enjoyable walk. You have beautiful views of the harbor and several historical sites on the harbor and are surrounded... More

We hung out on a park bench in the shade watching the world go by while we decompressed from drive to Charleston. It is a lovely spot to get away from the noise and congestion of downtown.
