A good start is to find out what kind of vacation you’d like to have.

If you have a child who loves turtles, then Folly is the way to go! Folly has many loggerhead turtle nests around the beaches that sometimes if you’re lucky, you will be able to see each day if the turtles have hatched. Another way to discover the island is to head down to the Lighthouse Inlet Heritage Preserve where you can’t swim but you can take a nice walk on the trail and discover the wildlife that happens to be there. There is a $1.00 per person charge to get into the park but know that the money goes towards preserving the park.


If your family is looking for a different kind of adventure, then maybe head to Folly Beach Chair Company where you are able to rent different things such as stand up paddle boards, bikes or surfboards. Take the stand-up paddle boards to the sound area and what a workout you will have. The cost isn’t too bad either and have a little fun while learning to use the paddle boards. Many of the locals you will find are out on the boards themselves enjoying the wildlife that you will see. If you’d like to be even more adventurous then possibly renting a boat and heading over to Morris Island or Fort Sumter for the day and explore a little there. We even hear that the surf fishing at Morris Island is wonderful and you might see a dolphin or two while you are there. Spending the day at the beach is another family-friendly favorite and maybe if you are lucky, you will get to find some shark teeth during your stay.
