The City of Folly Beach is located on Folly Island in Charleston County, South Carolina. Known to Charleston area residents as “The Edge of America,” Folly Beach is home to several extremely popular surf spots, despite the Island’s usually tranquil conditions. Additionally, the Island is a favored “staycation” for College of Charleston students seeking brief respite from their vigorous studies and the congested gridlock of Downtown Charleston. The Folly Beach community exudes eclectic island life and features a happening strip of surf shops, restaurants, gift shops, offices, and bars along Center Street, the Island’s only entrance and exit navigable by land.
Of particular historical significance the Great American Composer, George Gershwin spent time on the Island in 1934, penning the music for a folk opera adaptation of the novel Porgy by Charleston native DuBose Heyward. Gershwin was staying at 708 W. Arctic while working on the American Masterpiece Porgy and Bess, and it has been noted that Gershwin found to judge a beauty contest during his brief stay on Folly.
