Ready for some R & R? Calm and relaxed, Folly Beach is arguably the best beach in South Carolina. Known as “the edge of America,” Folly Beach is a seven-mile-long barrier reef located just eight miles south of Charleston — the closest beach to the city. This MotherStucker visited Folly Beach for the first time in July 2011 and fell in ❤ !
Folly Beach is a great place to play in the waves, collect seashells, and walk to the lighthouse. A fishing pier and beautiful views make Folly Beach one of the last old-timey, “shabby” beaches in the area. Folly Beach is also one of the best surfing destinations on the East Coast and is dog friendly! If you’re a history buff, Folly abounds with Civil War history. Shop the quaint (not junky) gift stores along Center Street and enjoy traditional seafood feasts at local dive (again, a compliment!) eateries. Upcomng events include the Festival of Lights (now through 12/31/12), Parade of Boats (12/1/12) and Charleston Sleigh Rides (12/14 – 12/31/12) See you at Folly Beach, South Carolina MotherStuckers!
