vrbo folly beach

The massive coastline and friendly atmosphere of Folly Beach is an ideal place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Often referred to as the ‘Edge of America’, Folly Beach is best known for its extensive beaches, lengthy history and amazing seafood. Originally detached from the mainland, Folly Beach was a haven for pirates and its once deserted beaches were filled with shipwrecks. Due to its proximity to Fort Sumter, Folly Beach was used by Union soldiers during the American Civil War. By 1930 and with the construction of Atlantic Pavilion, Folly Beach had started to become a busy holiday destination. Nowadays, it is a popular weekend beach destination for many. If you don’t know where to stay in Folly Beach, you can try something different and opt for a stay in a vacation rental, instead of one of the numerous hotels.
