Foursquare Tips

  • Come at night. The lights are beautiful and it's so peaceful.
  • So pretty!
  • Great place for pictures and a bit history
  • Great Place to take your dogs for a walk. Parking is free, which is great for downtown.
  • Looks better by boat
  • SMells like hot dogs here
  • Pirates were hanged here in the 1700s. Today, this public park at the tip of the peninsula is shaded by stately oak trees and lined with benches and surrounded by stunning Antebellum mansions.
  • This park is very rich in history and a popular place for wedding photos.
  • See on foot, not by car/van/bus/RV/spaceship.
  • Stede Bonnet, the so-called Gentleman Pirate, was hanged here on December 10, 1718. Afterward, his body was left on the gallows as a warning to other would-be buccaneers. (From Aerial America)
  • It's a strange place for a dog park
  • Best picnic spot!
  • Sorry to interrupt your morning run or sunrise photoshoot, but they used to hang pirates here.
  • Good for an evening walk, right on the battery and the edge of downtown Charleston.
  • Great for a run, looking at historical homes, sunsets and picnics.
  • From here you can see where the twin rivers empty into the Atlantic Ocean, and Fort Sumter, site of the first battle of the Civil War (more on that later).
  • Nice park. No gardens.
  • Go here to shoot Canon's at Ft. Sumter
  • Dog on vacation with you at the John Rutledge House Inn or Kings Courtyard Inn? The Gardens are a short walk away. Canopied with live oaks & one of the prettiest (yet un-official) downtown dog parks.
  • DO NOT take a picture with the cannons.
