Saw this from our schooner ride in the harbor, and the walk around was really enjoyable. Pretty park, trees so awesome, and views of harbor beautiful.

Plenty of picturesque views. This place has lots of room for walking and enjoying the scenery. Right across is Fort Sumter National Park. Very historical place.

This is an area that we enjoyed visiting because of the views, history, and oak trees. The confluences of the Cooper and Ashley Rivers, Charleston Harbor and the distance islands plus the beautiful home with their amazing architecture make the area a must see while...More

You must walk this area. Not only historic but wow, it's beautiful. The houses along the way are beautiful. My friend loaded an app so we could guess what they're worth. Funnn

Let me start by saying that I'm a little jaded when it comes to Charleston because it is so different than it was 25 to 30 years ago when I used to visit with my parents. The battery used to be a residential area where...More

A trip to Charleston should always include a walk around The Battery area. Beautiful park with lots of history, great view of the water, and the beautiful waterfront homes are unbelievable.

Just a bunch of cannons. Don't let the name deceive you, there are no "flower gardens" there. Only worth a stop if you are in the area.

I'm used to visiting Charleston in the brutal heat of summer, but this time we decided to stop overnight on the way to the beach. We were glad we did. We spent Easter afternoon wandering through the battery and the flowers and view 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.
