    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.

    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.

    If you visit here which is a must just remember to make sure during your visit you won't have to run to the bathroom. There is no public restrooms south of broad street.

    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) Read more

    Best between 8 and 10 AM. Everything after that is a tourist nightmare until dark.

    Good for an evening walk, right on the battery and the edge of downtown Charleston.
