10 Things to Do in Folly Beach

10 Things to Do in Folly Beach // girl about columbusLocated 10 miles from downtown Charleston, South Carolina, Folly Beach is a favorite travel destination for some R&R. Folly has it all: Clean beaches, delicious food, comfortable accommodations, unpretentious character, and memorable beauty. Here are some must-do’s while visiting Folly Beach:


  1. ) Enjoy some yummy food at local favorites such as Taco Boy – where tacos, nachos, and margaritas steal the show – and Woody’s Pizza, the best place on Folly to grab a pizza, subs, and cold beer.

2.) Work off that food by doing something active – kayaking, taking surfing lessons, and renting a  paddleboard all are excellent choices.folly-beach-south-carolina

3.) Venture to the northeast end of Folly Beach to see the historical Morris Island Lighthouse. Due to erosion, the lighthouse is no longer in operation but it still is a sight to be seen.Folly_Beach_Sunrise_Charleston_South_Carolina
