About these ratings

For many visitors, this stretch along the city's southern tip is the most iconic part of Charleston. This row of Southern-style mansions overlooking Charleston Harbor was formerly the heart and soul of Charleston's maritime activity. Today, the area attracts camera-toting tourists from all over the country. And although no shots were ever fired from here during the Civil War, you can still find old cannons and piles of shot.

As you explore this picturesque neighborhood, make sure to also spend plenty of time in the nearby White Point Gardens. You're guaranteed a spectacular view over the harbor.
