Somewhat hard to fine, sandwiched between two stores but cute. Walk though beautiful iron gates, down a tree-lined pathway to a cemetery (which I find beautiful). It’s quite overgrown but still beautiful and right next to an Orthodox Church. Expect 10-20min at the most unless...More

This is a wonderful path winding through scenic cemeteries and past interesting churches, with the impressive St. Philips anchoring it at one end. The Unitarian Church Cemetery, at the other end, is a particularly beautiful one. Unfortunately, out of the three blocks this covers, one...More

You can find a map online at the Garden Club of Charleston. It basically cuts through the cemeteries of severa churches over a few blocks. We found one block closed off for repairs. And after a detour on the street, the gateway to the famous...More

This is a shaded walk through the Unitarian Church cemetery, which is traditionally not manicured but allowed to grow in a more natural manner. The Charleston Garden Club has restored the vegetation to be a natural garden and it succeeds in providing a respite from...More

On one of our walks on King street we walked into this wonderful unique surprise. Near 194 King street you will find the gates to this Gateway walk. A graveyard with graves from hundreds of years ago to as recent as 2015. Loved it.

There are several reasons to do this walk. One is for the history. The churches, cemeteries, and buildings along the route are part of the history of Charleston. The Circular Congregational Church graveyard is the city's oldest burial grounds with monuments dating from 1695. Two...More

If you are in Charleston for more than a hurried visit to the most popular sights in the historic district, make the time to take the Gateway Walk . You will see historic Charleston from an entirely different perspective. It's a scenic pathway that begins...More

I loved this alley. It's an off the tourist path attraction in the shade with no cars. There are graves but it feels more like a secret garden. Worth a stroll.

So serene and peaceful. A little spooky but really historic and lovely. The grounds are not kept and that contributes to not being able to read many of the tombstones but it also contributes to the atmosphere.

Cool and spooky walk through a beautiful old graveyard. An easy detour off the sidewalks into a quiet spot.
