Folly Beach at your Fingertips

Remember way back in the day before the Internet existed and planning a trip to Folly Beach meant that you had to wait for the rental booklets to come in the mail, select a house, and then call the agency to see if it was available for summer? And that was only for those who already knew about Folly Beach.

Other vacation-hopefuls looking for a beach trip in the pre-Internet days had to go one step further and consult a travel agent. These agents would listen to what the vacationers wanted and then try and meet those needs by showing glossy brochures and rental magazines to them. Many times customers had great vacations using travel agents, but there were also the unhappy customers who didn’t get what they wanted out of a vacation.

Using a travel agent was hit or miss back then and millions of people in the world who wanted to get away, but didn’t know where to go, needed some kind of answer.

Then the Internet rolled around.

This enabled people to search for where they wanted to go and use global travel sites to book hotels, flights, and car rentals. Over the years, the features on these sites improved so visitors could find out if they were going to be staying in an area under construction, but for the most part, not a lot of information was available.

That is still true to this day and it is why sites like FollyBeach.com offer such a unique way to book a vacation.

FollyBeach.com connects visitors Folly Beach by providing ample information about what they want to know about. Want to stay on front beach and have a pool? Book it on the site. Want to find out what restaurants in town serve crab legs? Check out the restaurant tab and browse menus.

All of these questions can be answered because the site is devoted to being local because the objective of the site is to let everyone, near and far, feel like Folly is just a click away. And now, thanks to the new free app offered by FollyBeach.com to Android and iPhone users, that local touch just got even better.
