Fun in the Sun at Folly Beach, SC

This post is not going to be super exciting or informative but I still want to give you some insight into my visit to Folly Beach in South Carolina.

Just a little but of background information first….

My mom lives just outside of Charleston in Summerville and I came down for the weekend since my entire family would be present for her birthday. Instead of sitting around and doing nothing (this tends to be a thing), we went to the Sea and Sand Festival on Folly Beach which consisted of the following:

  1. Beer
  2. Country music
  3. Local vendors
  4. Food

The weather was perfect other than the crazy winds and a nice break from the Boston cold.  

We tried some of the local vendor’s goods including Snöbar which sells alcohol infused Popsicles. I love my tequila so I had the margarita version while my mom had the Cosmo one. We both enjoyed ours but they were a little overpriced at $5 a pop.

After walking through the different tents, we went to Snapper Jack’s for lunch where I had steamed oysters filled with Spinach and cheese, they were delicious.

I had also shared a Blue Lagoon Fish Bowl with my Aunt Sue which was also very good but not a ton of alcohol was included in this drink.

For my main course I had the Fire and Ice Chicken Sandwich that had a siracha aoli sauce that was incredible.

If you ever have a chance to visit Folly Beach and want to grab a bite to eat, this place is perfect. It’s not right on the beach which is a downside but it has a great atmosphere, great staff, and great music. It is well worth the walk away from the beach.

The best part about this whole day: THE BEACH 


This beach has the perfect sand and a great place to look for starfish!

With it not being prime beach season (it was about 70 degrees) I didn’t have a chance to catch a tan but it felt so good to be walking around the beach.
