Charleston Stories and Tips

A Beautiful City for Walking

Historic Charleston Photo, Charleston, South Carolina

A visit in March would be great as it isn't as humid as at other times. A walk through the historic district of Charleston is a must. Start at the corner of E. Battery St. and Murray Blvd. There is limited parking, but it is easier to find a space the earlier you arrive! Try arriving about 7 am for the sunrise from the Battery. Then stroll through White Point Gardens Park, statues, people walking dogs, a very nice place to sit and people watch. Then head for Meeting St. to start your walk. Meeting St. is just outside of the park, 2 blocks west from E. Battery St. As you walk along, you can't help but be captivated by the beautiful houses and the gardens you can glimpse through the gates. I even was invited to come into a few and photograph the gardens! It is a beautiful walk along Meeting, taking a right on Church St., and another on Water St. This takes you right back to the Battery on Bay St. where you can see what Charleston is probably most famous for - Rainbow Row. These stately colorfully painted houses on the waterfront are not to be missed!
