The best part of vacationing to Charleston SC is that not only can you be captivated by the history and charm of downtown, but you can completely relax on the sandy beaches and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. One of our favorite beach getaways around Charleston is Folly Beach SC. The eclectic surf town has recently become a top tourist destination for so many reasons. From Civil War-era history, to world-class surfers, and top-notch eateries a Folly Beach vacation is everything in one.
As a native Brit, when I first told family and friends that I was moving to Charleston SC for a three-month vacation, few knew anything about the city. The few that did, however, gushed about the wonderful time I was sure to have. Suggestions of where and what I should be doing flooded my inbox. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, other than an exciting new adventure, in a historic and beautiful American city, with true southern hospitality.
