We were in Charleston for a wedding recently, and met some friends downtown to have lunch. Decided to take a walk down to Battery Park and were glad we did. It was a hot sunny day, and the park had to be 10-15 degrees cooler with all the massive trees that cover it. It's a great place to take a... More

Exploring the park and the beautiful homes in Battery was amazing. The history behind the park and some of the homes if worth the time and effort to hear about. Take a carriage tour to get the best information.

We walked from our hotel on Meeting Street-seems like everything is walkable. Beautiful architecture with tons of history. Don't miss the Rainbow Row of colorfully painted Victorian homes.

Located on the battery in Charleston it is full of memorials and statues, including the ”Confederate Defenders of Charleston”. There are also great views of Charleston Harbor and Fort Sumter. A great place to walk around and soak up the history of this city.

It seems like a must do when visiting Charleston but it is nothing more than a pretty park. There are a few statues, a pavilion and water views.

I think if you only have time to do one thing in Charleston, go visit this park because it encompasses all that makes Charleston what it is. There are historic southern houses, large oak trees that have witnessed history, as well as canons and statues that describe what Charleston has been a part of. There are also benches that look...

This is a great point to view the ocean as well as a number of older houses. It you walk on the Battery Wall you are up and it makes taking pictures of the homes excellent. The statues and info provided adds much to your knowledge of the history of the area.

The Battery and White Point Gardens are a must see in Charleston. The beautiful "mansions" are gorgeous. The view of the water is breathtaking, especially if boats are out and the garden is nicely shaded -- a perfect place to sit down and rest a little on a hot day after walking. There were two photo shoots going on when... More
