Help.... I think I'm spending too much time surfing the net and reading about Folly Beach! I've been looking at a few travel sites that are not painting Folly Beach in a "family friendly" light. The most common theme seems to be that it's overrun with drunken college kids, urinating in public, etc.
As you can see from my DE status, I am familiar with Myrtle Beach & it also has a bad reputation for out-of-control behavior. Although that is true during certain weeks, for the most part, we consider it a safe and fun place for families.
Also, some of the terms that have popped up are: bohemian, free-spirited, hippy, funky, eclectic, "not for the conservative". Is there something "between the lines" that I am not catching on to? I would love to hear any specifics.
We are just a normal family who usually stays in Surfside, Myrtle or North Myrtle---50 ish parents, late 20's kids & 2 grandchildren. We have been so excited to plan a trip to the Charleston beach area. Please tell me it's not as bad as I'm reading.
p.s. on tripadvisor, I read only great things about Folly Beach :)
