The live oak trees of the park are absolutely breathtaking. It is a beautiful park with much sad history of where pirates and slaves were hung from those 300 year old trees.

Perfect way to spend an afternoon. Of course depends on the weather. We had great sunshine and pleasant temperatures. Not very crowded on the last of the Thanksgiving weekend. Great views of the harbor and Fort Sumter. Suggest you bring long lens and pair of...More

Tour Charleston on foot and you will see wonderful sites. A map, comfortable shoes and a guide make the city come alive with history. Wonderful.

We took a delightful afternoon walk through Waterfront Park, down Bay St, and through the Battery & White Point Gardens. It's not really "gardens" as much as it is an open green space or park. This is not a 'must-see' location if visiting Charleston, but...More

Very pretty place to walk around. Gorgeous gazebo for weddings. Kids enjoy seeing the cannons. Hard to find parking at busy times but worth the walk.

There are a couple monuments and a gazebo but really nothing more. You could probably drive past it and see everything without ever stopping.

This park is very pretty. Unfortunately, it was an unusually chilly day when I wandered through, so I did not linger as long as I would have liked. Would definitely come back here though!

Although I was on a bus guided tour we did stop here that I remember. So much history in this ("Holy") City that borders on "jaw-dropping". Antiquity and patrimony of the US are so connected to these sites and it is our duty to pay...More

A lot of homes and inns are around the Battery. Few of the closest John Rutledge House and Elliott House Inn. They are within 0.5 miles. The Battery Carriage house is across the street. Very beautiful and one of the... More

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.
