A must see park at the tip of the historic Charleston peninsula. Tour bus stops here and the driver explains what you are looking at in the harbor.

I was very intrigued by all the soldier monuments. Over 300 + volleys onto Charleston in less that one year.

Get a feel for the history of Charleston and enjoy a romantic sunset from the well placed benches. Beautiful historic Charleston homes line the streets. Very safe during the daylight hours, just use caution after dark.
