    Situated at the southernmost tip of the peninsula, Battery Park is the perfect introduction to Charleston, lined with stately waterfront mansions, Civil War-era cannons, palmettos, and gorgeous views of the Sullivan Island Lighthouse.

    Just south of Charleston, this local-favorite beach is the perfect spot to pack a picnic, rent bicycles, or try your hand at ocean kayaking or surfing. It’s also a prime fishing spot.
