Run Into the Sunset (Folly Beach): There’s hardly a better spot near Charleston to watch the day end then from the county park at the southernmost end of Folly Beach. The final mile of sand on the island is undeveloped, and rounds off into a spit that overlooks the Stono River, Kiawah Island, Bird Key, and the Atlantic Ocean. Run at low tide for plenty of hard-packed sand.
Directions from Charleston: Take the James Island Expressway until it dead ends into Folly Rd. Take a right and continue to Folly Beach. Take a right on Ashley Ave. and continue until the road dead ends into the park. (Click for Google Maps Directions to Ashley Avenue)
