FOLLY BEACH, S.C. (WCBD) – People are flocking to the beaches this weekend, getting that last bit of Summer in before Fall rolls around.
The road to Folly Beach was bumper to bumper Sunday morning.
Along the shoreline, tents and umbrellas filled up every square foot.
People from all over are enjoying the beaches in the Lowcountry for Labor Day Weekend.
“I’m from South Florida,” Robert Kildea said.
Whether you’re surfing or spending time with family visitors say there are lots of beautiful views to enjoy.
“The camera doesn’t do it justice, you got to look around and see the environment, the ambiance,” Kildea said.
Some say they’re a bit sad to wave goodbye to Summer.
“You just got to appreciate it because you don’t get it back,” Kildea said.
Some locals, however, have waited until the end of the season to make their beach trip.
“We’re actually from Monks Corner and we came down today just to not be in the traffic and be at the beach and my brother is actually fishing on the pier so it’s really cool,” Sara Gramling said.
After a Summer of ‘feels-like’ temperatures in the triple digits, Lowcountry natives are welcoming Fall with open arms.
“Most people in South Carolina can say they love their Summers but we’re getting to the end where we want Fall again,” Gramling said.
Whether beachgoers are from near or far, cooling off in the Folly water this Labor Day weekend is a must.
