I know that most people think that the beach and Summer go together like peas and carrots, but did you know that the beach and Winter go together just as perfectly? In fact, Winter at the beach may just be my favorite time to go. Sure, you don’t have the warmth of the summer sun and you can’t enjoy the waves without a wet suit, but you can enjoy the quiet that wintertime brings. You have the beach to yourself, you can wander without stepping over towels and chairs and sandcastles, and you can even focus on a wonderful book.
If your winter beach getaway includes a visit to Folly Beach SC, Charleston's funky eclectic beach town, you can get into Folly’s best restaurants without the wait. That would be a rare occurance during the summer! Wake up early for a brisk, sunrise walk on the beach then relax over the morning paper with a steaming latte at the Lost Dog Cafe. Grab a beach cruiser for a ride down the beach and enjoy the quiet, uninterupted miles of Atlantic views. Recharge and refuel for lunch with fish tacos at Rita's Seaside Grille. Walk to the island's local institution, Bert's Market, and pick up some locally-caught seafood or order up a sandwich at their Wooden Spoon Deli. Sure, your days on the beach in the winter might not include a bikini and flip flops but you can still enjoy a game of beach volleyball with friends, collecting shells with the kids, or taking long walks with the dog.
Take advantage of cooler temperatures at the beach and Folly's close proximity to downtown Charleston and head into town for shopping on King Street, taking in the view of Charleston Harbor from one of the many oversized swings at Waterfront Park, or just walking the streets of the historic district. This is the ideal time of year to explore downtown without the crowded sidewalks of the summer tourist season. And, most importantly, you can stay in the most luxurious of rentals for a steal.
