Zig Zag Alley: The Littlest Alley That Could (Charleston, South Carolina)

As I entered the tiny little dead end alley, Zig Zig Alley, I was greeted by a warm and gentle older gentleman in a Sunday suit and bow tie and his very cuddly dog.? As the gentleman said good morning and quickly explained that his dog was very friendly, it was too late.? This big fluff ball, not only approached me, but pressed his body against me saying “take me home” without saying a work.? It was the perfect way to enter and explore this quirky named alley just off The Battery.

I can’t tell you exactly where it is except that it is just off one of the side roads of The Battery.? If I told you any more, it would ruin an opportunity to take a Charleston mystery walking tour.? Many locals already know of this fun residential alley.? If you are going to make it a mystery tour, no GPS cheating.

If you have not yet completed your bucket list of visiting all of the alley’s on the peninsula, here is one more and perhaps the littlest one of them all.
