“Do you dare visit after dark?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

As the site made notorious for the number of duels that occurred here, it is often mentioned during ghost tours within the city! While I can't speak for the ghosts, I think it's a very lovely area and although we've been there numerous times, I can't say I've seen anything that has given me the shivers. Now the graveyard of the round church is different story!

“Nice picture spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Very shady and nice photo ops! Not sure the specific address but trip advisor marks it for you. Nice brick/cobblestone combination path. This area has a marker plaque half way through on the wall that says it was renovated in 2005.

“Very peaceful and quiet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Old, original, and you can feel like you are walking back through time to the beginning of the city's founding.

Spotted this just walking towards E Bay, never knew this existed. Loved getting to see this. It's a cozy little spot that is so cool.

“Beautiful Secret Spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

One of my favorite alleys in Charleston, this is covered in beautiful greenery and gorgeous cobblestone. Bring your camera and take a group photo - it is one of the prettiest hidden spots in Charleston!
