THINGS TO DO AND SEE
Charleston and the surrounding area offers an abundance of attractions, historical sites and activities.
Affectionately called the “Edge of America,” Folly Beach is a charming and laid-back island town that is home to beautiful sunrises and sunsets, rich history, good food and friendly beaches. The iconic Morris Island stands 300 yards off the north end of Folly Beach and the 1,045 foot Folly Beach pier offers visitors wonderful views and an opportunity to fish the coastal waters of South Carolina. Center Street provides great dining options as well as shops that offer a variety of goods and services. Keep an eye out for the painted Folly Beach Boat on your way out to the island – displaying murals of birthday wishes, marriage proposals, and just about any message you can imagine.
Located at 100 Station 19 Street heading North out of downtown Charleston on US 17/US 26 N. The island is also the site of the famous Fort Moultrie, which was used during the Revolutionary War, the Civil War and up to World War II. Today the fort is used as a museum. The quaint Middle Street of the island has several fun restaurants and lends the island a sense of an “old-fashioned neighborhood”. A large recreation area provides residents and visitors tennis courts, basketball courts, a gazebo and a playground to enjoy.
Isle of Palms County Park
Located at One 14th Ave, between Palm Ave and Ocean Blvd. Isle of Palms maintains a longstanding reputation as a family-friendly, noncommercial site that truly represents the best of South Carolina’s beaches. Featuring a range of leisure and sports activities, from beach-side bars to numerous volleyball courts as well as accessible showers and bathrooms, this beach and the surrounding community are characterized by a quaint, small-town vibe even in the height of the season.
