The holidays are just around the corner, and now is the perfect time to start planning your holiday trip to Waters Edge Inn at Folly Beach. Escape the snow this winter and enjoy the holidays during Folly’s off-season, where the town is a bit quieter and cooler but with just as much fun.

Happening in December is the annual Christmas parade. On December 9, Christmas floats, marching bands, and Santa will be coming down Center Street to bring the holiday spirit to Folly. Join Santa at Folly River Park to receive goodies after the parade ends. Ice Skating at Folly Beach will be back, and who wouldn’t want to ice skate right next to the beach? It is the perfect holiday activity to do with family and friends, but with a twist. Ice skating dates are to be released soon.

Plan to stay awhile? After Christmas, stay in town for the New Year’s Eve Flip Flop Drop & Fireworks. New Year’s Eve and the Flip Flop Drop have a new twist this year. Instead of waiting until midnight to ring in the New Year, join us at 7pm for a family-friendly ringing in of the New Year with fireworks and Folly’s Flip Flop Drop so the whole family can join in. It is a celebration done Folly-style. Then, on January 1, 2024, ring in the new year with Folly Beaches very own Bill Murray Look-a-Like Polar Plunge, where goers pay homage to one of Charleston’s famous residents, Bill Murray, by dressing up as their favorite Bill Murray character and taking the plunge into the chilling Atlantic Ocean. The annual plunge is beachside at the Tides Hotel and includes a costume contest.

No matter what time of year it is, there is always something to do here on Folly Beach! And what better time to come than during the holiday season when the fun is endless? Plan your trip today and stay at Water’s Edge Inn.
