Don’t dare call Folly Beach Charleston. Though it sits just minutes from the Holy City, Folly Beach has its own culture and vibe. Millionaires and surf bums get along with Southern ease, which makes this beach town one of my faves. Rita’s Seaside Grill captures that same ethos with the best bar in town (the bar itself is covered with vintage surf-shack stickers). Don’t miss Rita’s spicy blackened tuna nachos — try them with a house-squeezed watermelon margarita. The shrimp and grits are also a must. Then go work everything off bodysurfing in the Atlantic. The waves crash just steps away from Rita’s doors.
