You must visit the Battery when visiting Charleston. The water views are amazing and the park shows its history with its statues and cannons used during the Civil War. Walking paths thru the park highlighted by some really incredible looking trees you dont see here in Jersey. People playing frisbee, walking dogs and picnicing all enjoying the weather. Huge, historic... More

This is where the Atlantic Oceans forms. Right at the confluence of the Cooper and Ashley Rivers. The park is a beautiful combination of Live Oaks, Statues and great scenery. Fort Sumter is just to the east and History is everywhere.

I really liked walking through this little park. It had a nice gazebo where some musicians were playing. I loved the trees and the statues that stood throughout the park. It was just a nice place to sit and take a break while enjoying the walk through the streets of Charleston and a short walk from the Battery.

I think walking along the Battery is a must when visiting Charleston. It is a great place to walk along the water and at the same time enjoying the beautiful mansions and gardens on the other side of the street. There is a lot of parking around. There is also a park with benches. You can spend a short or... More

You go for the history and the view to Ft. Sumter, albeit it far away. House of historic interest on one side of the square (water on the other 2 and an incongruous hotel on the fourth. If you're on a cruise or just walking around its the terminus of a nice walk south on East Bay St.. Worth it... More

We always stop by Battery Park. I love it because it's a mix of tourists and locals (you can almost always find someone fishing). You can see Fort Sumter across the water. The mansions that sit behind the park and along Battery St. are amazing. Parking is usually never a problem.

The walkway down to the battery provided a beautiful view of the water, Rainbow Row and the mansions near the park. Definitely a wonderful addition to a visit to Charleston.

What a great place to spend some time. I walked around a little with a few friends during our time passing through Charleston, and it was worth the stop. We saw dolphins playing in the water and we loved the history and beauty of the park. I would have spent more time here if I could - it's the kind... More

One of the most historic areas in Charleston likely filled with the ghosts of the many hanged here over the ages. Know your history and walk in, don't drive, and enjoy a real sense of place. Pity the folks who live on this touristy street, which locals avoid if possible during the season. From carriages to traffic, there is often... More
