Known to Charleston locals as “the Edge of America”, Folly Beach is home to numerous surf spots, the most popular being the Washout, 10th Street and the Folly Beach Pier. Despite its usually calm conditions, Folly Beach has gained prominence as one of the more popular surf spots along the East Coast. Folly Beach is an eclectic beach community with surf shops, restaurants, gift shops, offices, and bars along Center Street; the main road and gateway to the community. Located just 8 miles south of Downtown Charleston, this beach city is perfect for those seeking a different kind of Live/Work, but mostly Play neighborhood.
Beach front homes and homes within walking distance of the beach range from $550,000 to $2,500,000. If your dream is to own a beach house, but you have a limited budget, then this neighborhood would be for you!
