The Pier on Folly Beach is iconic. In the 1940s, the Pier hosted many big bands including Glenn Miller and Maurice Williams. It's just 5 blocks from Lamm's End Cottage which just happened to be constructed in the 40s. Imagine if the walls could talk! Stretching a half-mile into the ocean, the pier is not only popular with anglers. Birdwatchers are captivated by migrating flocks of birds and if for those who enjoy sunrises and sunsets, this is a must-see on Folly Beach.
