Another interesting area of Charleston. Walked this area our first morning on a Lowcountry Walking Tour. The homes in the battery are beautiful and have so much history. Went back to this area more than once to see what we missed the other times. The park is a beautiful area with all the trees and history of the canons. Make... More

We took a bike tour down on the Battery, which was awesome. It was so pretty, that we drove back after the bike tour was over, and walked around, reading about history, and letting our Son run around and play in the HUGE trees. A definite must see!!!

Good place to calm down, end point of the peninsula. Enjoy relaxed atmosphere and gorgeous terrace houses nearby. You may see lots of birds flying over the river, ideal place for a picnic. Beware, no public toilet nearby, you need to walk at least 10-12 min to the nearest one, that is the only negative point...

The trees were amazing. They created such a natural roof to block the sun's heat that you could actually feel a little drop in temperature. From here, it is a short and beautiful walk to the two old cobblestone streets that remain from the early days of Charleston. The cobblestones came over in the holds of British ships as ballast...

Beautiful and great for pics! But I mean you walk around and then you just sort of stand there and think, "...now what do I do?" More of something that's fun to drive by than stay in!

June 15 & 16, 2015 while visiting the Gardens my husband spotted a large bird sitting in the canopy. Then we noticed 20+ birds in varying trees, along with numerous nests dotting the tree tops. One lone sign explained the Gardens had been transformed into a rookery for Black Crowned Night Heron. Early morning and late evening the birds venture... More

White point garden is a beautiful little park at the end of the charleston peninsula. It is tree lined which adds a lot of shade from the hot heat. It has a lot of birds and waterbirds which I've never seen before. A great place to sit and relax.
