Known as the “Edge of America” Folly Beach has evolved since the 19th century from an island of nine families to one of the most popular places in the Charleston area to live and play. Until the opening of the James Island Connector in 1996 Folly Beach was mainly a seasonal recreation area made up of mostly single family homes and a handful of small businesses on Center Street.

Now that the drive from downtown has been cut to 15 minutes, the island is bustling with year round residents who enjoy a relaxed live and let live lifestyle. Beachcombers, fishermen, sun worshipers and anyone who’s just tired of the rat race will be right at home on Folly Beach.
