Folly in the Fall

Where Charleston - - Contents - For my full Charleston itin­er­ary, go to where­trav­

When the crowds thin out, Folly be­comes a quiet stretch of sand where lo­cals can be them­selves.

In the sum­mer, the crowds can al­most over­whelm Folly Beach. The long, thin is­land packs up with cars vy­ing for park­ing spots as beach vis­i­tors come for the surf and sand. But come fall, the beaches thin out; the lit­tle eater­ies and shops slow down, and you get a feel for what Folly once was and some­times still is: a quiet beach and is­land com­mu­nity where the lo­cals can be them­selves. So even if you’re stay­ing on the Charleston penin­sula proper, pack the car for a day trip out to the is­land, which is only 20 min­utes away.
