The City of Folly Beach is a Great Place to Be

Folly Beach SCCharlestonians and visitors alike all have something to say about our beaches. Everyone has a favorite for their own reason. Some like IOP, others Sullivan’s Island, some swear that Edisto is the best. However, there is one beach that we all have made the trek to and enjoyed every minute of it, Folly Beach SC. Known to everyone as the Edge of America, its moniker is justified in that it can take most of us a hot minute to get there. Since the beach is so well known, we at Infinity Realty wanted to take some time out and expand on the City of Folly Beach SC and explain why we love the area so much.
