“Tip of the Peninsula”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

It's hard for me to go to Charleston without walking down to the battery. To get there, you will pass Rainbow Row and hundreds of historic homes. Plus, azaleas, dogwoods, yellow jasmine, the Charleston Harbor, a waterfront part and plenty of great places to eat.

“Time for a Stroll or Pictures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

This is a fantastic place to watch sunset. Don't forget to bring your camera! You can also watch the dogs play (popular dog park) or stroll along the sea wall, under the trees, or along the beautiful homes. Lovely park.

“Nice strolling park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

It turn a bit cooler on the day we walked in the park, but still great to stroll along the water. With the large trees, probably very "cool" place to hang out.

“The Homes And Gardens Are Just Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

We loved walking through the area and looking at the beautiful homes. We zillowed (zillow.com) one of the houses to see how much it was listed for and were not surprised to see a $8.9 million asking price.

“A great place to run or meander”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

The Battery in downtown Charleston is a must-see for anyone visiting. It's got stunning views of the water (especially at sunset) and some of the most beautiful houses in the area. The trees are lovely on sunny days, and the park begs for a picnic. On beautiful days, it can be tricky to park, but even if you can't find a spot on the main road, the neighborhoods are just as scenic. A great free activity for anyone visiting the area.
