With spring in full swing once again and the promise of summer starting to resonate among those who love the beach, it’s time to get outdoors once again.

However, it always helps to have a team of local experts on your side who can guide you to the best sites across South Carolina as well as find Folly Beach rentals that are going to make your stay that much more enjoyable.
If you’re looking for a coastal area of South Carolina that’s going to appeal to everyone in your group, the city of Folly Beach is hard to beat. That’s because this barrier island of about 2,700 residents runs for about six miles along the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a reason why it’s called “The Edge of America” and the prime location alone should be enough to entice those looking for Folly Beach rentals as a way to secure their summer stay. If not, we encourage you to learn more about some of the hottest destinations in the city of Folly Beach as well as nearby. With this guide as a map for your upcoming summer excursion, you are guaranteed to have a memorable time in South Carolina.
Making Waves: Since we’ve already established the proximity of Folly Beach rentals to the wide open ocean, it would make sense that travelers would want to get out in the water. According to TripAdvisor.com, there is no shortage of companies offering kayaks, canoes and other watercraft that are going to propel your adventure. Once such company, Coastal Expeditions, is headquartered in nearby Charleston and reviews show that guided tours of Folly Creek are one such route you can take.
Shop like a Local: We’ve previously covered Folly Beach’s proximity to the historic Fort Sumter site and its significance as it pertains to the outbreak of the U.S. Civil War. We highly encourage a visit, but there’s no reason why you shouldn’t spend some time relaxing through shopping. According to VisitFolly.com, the city offers surf shops, beach stores and places for souvenirs. However, local favorites such as Bert’s Market, which was previously voted best market in the Charleston region, awaits prior to your relaxing day on the beach.
Gone Fishing: Again, the ocean plays a pivotal role in things to do at Folly Beach. The historic Edwin S. Taylor Fishing Pier, at 24 feet wide and 1,045 feet long, is “perfect for fishing, strolling and bird and dolphin watching,” according to TripAdvisor.com. We couldn’t agree more and as such, suggest a trip here for those who’d like to venture into the ocean without ever having to get their feet wet.
