Such a nice walk! Loved the view of the water. Beautiful homes along walk and next to the park. Relaxing to sit in park. We really enjoyed walking north through the neighborhoods to look at historic homes, beautiful sideyards and walkways- so, so interesting. Memorable.

Combine a great history lesson with a beautiful view and an excellent area to walk and you’ve got the Battery! Even if you don’t know SC history, you will appreciate this area of Charleston.

We drove down to the Battery and spent about an hour walking around. Plenty of parking and free. We even saw a wedding taking place while we were there. It's a neat place to visit while in Charleston, SC.

This is a nice park along the sea wall. Good views and a nice place to walk. There is still a confederate statue there.

Walk along the river any time. But I would not suggest after 11, just for safety's sake. The actual park area closes to keep the homeless from congregating around dark, not 5 PM.
