Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web
Once a weapon-filled defensive site, Battery & White Point Gardens is now designed for peace and tranquility. As you walk through the pleasant park and gardens, you can examine cannons, statues, and other monuments, including a bronze bust of famous poet, novelist, and historian W.G. Simms. Look for the commemorative marker for a pirate captain and his crew who were hung at the site about 300 years ago. All your wandering will be in the shadow of many large antebellum houses, surrounded by oak trees and overlooking the Charleston Harbor. The gardens are suitable for picnicking, recreation, photography, and other leisurely activities.

  • It is at the end of the peninsula and has great views of the water, nice benches to sit on for reading, people watching, pondering, etc. 
  • This is really a must see when you visit Charleston. There is so much history and it's so interesting. 
  • Great place to view the harbor from. Perfect place to have a picnic and play on the cannons while you look out at boats sailing by.
