Laid-Back Folly Beach
A short drive from Charleston, islands hug the coastline and offer a lovely selection of beaches, each with its own personality. Folly Beach has a laid-back atmosphere and outdoor activities ranging from bird-watching to kite boarding and fishing on the town pier. If you'd like to get a behind-the-scenes look at the local flora and fauna, Charleston Kayak has backwater tours of the wetlands that are teeming with wildlife.
