Can ya’ll believe that we are already one week into the 2nd month of 2019!?! And as you are realizing this you find yourself still making a bucket list for 2019. We know that a visit to Folly Beach has been in the back of your mind – SO plan it! Oh and you also have always wanted to stay in a Boutique Bed and Breakfast? You are in luck, because Water’s Edge Inn is the perfect hidden gem in this laid back beach town. And then you just remembered that you told your friend that you have always wanted to try oysters! Well whether you choose raw, steamed, or fried here are some of Folly’s Favorites for oysters, craft brews, and local atmosphere.

Bowens Island is located about a 5 minute drive from Folly Beach. It is tucked back from the busyness of the Island and offers that down home dive bar atmosphere surrounded by the beauty of the marsh, river, and sunsets. Whether you choose locally harvested steamed or fried oysters, shrimp, hushpuppies, frogmore stew or just swing by for a cold beer, you will not be disappointed!

Folly Beach Crab Shack is another wonderful local hang out. Only a five minute walk from the Inn, they were voted “one of the ten best seafood spots in Charleston” by Southern Living, so get ready for a “Shacktacular Time!” Enjoy local music and try their delicious buffalo oysters or crab stuffed flounder. Kick off your beach day with their spin on a bloody mary, the Crabby Mary. If you are feeling a little “on the wild side,” order up a round of their oyster shooters!

Just around the Corner from our Inn is The Washout. Every Wednesday they host a oyster roast from 8-11 PM with live music! If you skip the oysters you must try their housemade crabcakes, blackened saku tuna bites, and she crab soup! YUM YUM! Also every Wednesday they host a craft village with local artists who set up booths to sell their creations from local art to jewelry to clothing etc!! And best part is its free (unless you purchase something to take back home with you, and we have a feeling that you will!

So don’t wait any longer and book your Folly Vacation with us! Come stay at our Inn and meet our amazing, friendly, local staff that can fill you in on the “locals only” spots not to miss this time of year!

Before you know it, the beaches will be packed and just stepping outside will make you want to hide back in the air conditioning!
