Folly Beach is known for having a flair for the unusual and a magnet for adventure seekers. Realistically, how many beach towns do you know that have a New Year’s tradition that’s as iconic as our “Bill Murray Polar Plunge.” For the “non-natives,” January 1st, 2021 marked the 7th annual Polar Plunge, in which beachgoers enjoy a weekend of festivities celebrating Bill Murray, a Charleston resident. You can dress up as your favorite Bill Murray character and freeze your “bill off” by running into the Atlantic Ocean. What a memorable way to start the new year!
If the Polar Plunge doesn’t float your boat, that’s fine! Folly Beach’s festival scene in January and February has something for everyone. There’s excellent cuisine, live music, entertainment, arts and crafts, and giveaways. When you stay in Folly Beach house rentals, you can be in the heart of the action and forget about Covid 19 for a little while.
