Folly Beach is hands-down one of my favorite places on earth. It’s a laid-back beach community close to Charleston, SC, but still quite removed from the hustle of downtown. We spent our days in Folly and some evenings in Charleston, since it’s only a short drive. Some days, it felt as if time was passing a little slower when listening to the waves or walking down the street. This location is versatile, as it’s family friendly but also nice for couples or a girls trip too!
Chauncey and I headed down to the low country for a couples getaway mid-August. It was our second time staying at Folly Beach together, and my third time there (all in the last year!). Nothing makes me as excited as heading down Center Street. Center Street is the road into town and dead ends at the hotel, Tides Folly Beach. I love how quaint everything is. Oh, and let’s not forget that you can walk around in your swimsuit and cover up!!! Major plus in my book, especially when heading to lunch from the beach.
This is a view of the hotel from the Folly Beach Fishing Pier. The beach was crowded that day because there was a surf competition. The competition was fun to watch and listen to. Most days, the beach is not that crowded at all.
One night a week, the hotel has movie night on the beach! Last year I watch Armageddon while I was there. This year the movie was Dirty Dancing. You’ve not watched a movie until you’ve had the beach movie experience. Chauncey, though, had the gall to ask if we could leave early, right before the big finale dance. . .um, no, honey!
