|Folly Beach --
also known as "The Edge Of America" -- is a 7-mile long natural
barrier island on the Atlantic coast. Folly Beach is located just
eight miles south of historic downtown Charleston, South Carolina,
only 15 minutes via the Connector.
Folly Beach is the
home of sea, sand, and surfing, historical and cultural sites; a
maritime forest; Morris Island Lighthouse; great food; great times;
and southern hospitality.
During the day you can enjoy the best surfing and water sports
including fishing, crabbing and shrimping -- or just take it easy
relaxing on the beach.
In the evening you can take advantage of the easy access to the
restaurants and night-life Charleston promises. The short drive to
Charleston adds to the appeal of Folly Beach, which consists of
predominately residential housing, limited business, and several
miles of walking beach.
Folly Beach is laid
back and rustic, casual to the core, and perfect for your South
Carolina beach wedding.
