Located just off Center St (Folly Beach’s main street), Water’s Edge Inn is within walking distance of the beach and the many fantastic restaurants Folly has to offer. The intimate Inn provides a relaxing escape from the holiday crowd while maintaining easy access to the beach and dining.

Feast on delicious Lowcountry dining

Charleston has some of the best dining on the East Coast. With some of the world's top chefs and access to local seafood, your taste buds will be happy while visiting Folly Beach. We recommend trying out some local favorites: oysters, shrimp & grits, she-crab soup, and barbecue. Click here for more recommendations for local Folly Beach restaurants and Charleston restaurants.

Enjoy the outdoors

We recommend beating the heat by taking a dip in the Atlantic Ocean and looking for a way to combine exercise and fun over the holiday. We also recommend renting a paddleboard or a kayak or taking surf lessons! Prefer staying on land? Water's Edge Inn provides its guests with beach cruiser bikes, or rent a golf cart or moped and cruise the island.

Watch the Folly Beach fireworks show.

It would not be the 4th of July without fireworks. Lucky for you, Folly Beach offers a beautiful fireworks show. Visitors can view the fireworks along the beach and on Center Street.
