Tell me about it....anything going on there this time of year? I've never been and don't know much about it. Got a milestone birthday coming up and looking for a weekend getaway.

I lived down there back in the 80s, a friend of mine rents a house there every year. More laid back and low rent than Isle of Palms Etc. Downtown Charleston is only 15 minutes or so away. If you want low key away from it all try Edisto. Folly is nice because it's not pretentious but still close to all that if desired.

We spend a good bit of time down in that area. What are you looking to do?

Just me and my girl looking for a place to do a birthday bash but just the two of us. We both like bar hopping but I wanted something more low key then Myrtle but still fun. We could stay in Myrtle, save a bunch of $ and do their big Halloween bash but I just want to do something different. How are the bars in Folly this time of year? The Tides was already booked up. I know Charleston is just a short drive also. The condo we are looking at is right near Snapper Jacks if that helps.

Great place to go if you do not like beaches like myrtle.

 

I quit going to Myrtle Beach after I was old enough to buy beer. We went there (Cherry Grove) in HS and year or two after HS and most def raised hell, but after you turn 21 you have no business going there. 

 

Charleston area is awesome, but my favorite beach to go to is Wrightsville Beach.

Yeah its nice. A lot more laid back and bohemian than myrtle. Pretty good food, gotta go to Charleston for the good good.

Has a wicked mouth to the inlet if you like jet skiing. Intense choppy waves made for big air a half mile or so until you hit the ocean. Schools of porpoises everywhere and a nice little nature reserve at the end of the beach.

To answer your question, it's a great place at a nice time of the year. October is one of the best months in Charleston. It can still be warm enough to hit the beach in the middle of the day. There are some really cool restaurants/bars taco boy, surf bar, Rita's (for breakfast and bloodys). The Tides has a nice beach bar also. If you like oysters, goto Bowans Island just a short drive away. Another good restaurant if you are looking for seafood is Charleston Crab house, it sits on the water and is also a small drive away. It's not very touristy there, it's a little more artsy. You will have a great time. I am jealous, happy birthday.

Thanks, just convinced me to book it.

Myrtle is good for one thing........golf. Headed down the week after I go to Folly with a group of guys for a yearly golf trip which is another reason I didn't want to go there for Halloween. Although I must admit, they do throw the largest Halloween party I have ever seen.

 

If my girl didn't have a condo on Crescent Beach in Myrtle the only time I would go is for this golf outing. We go down a couple times a month in the summer but after 2 days I can't wait to get out of there.
