Winter is typically mild on Folly Beach, with an average temperature of 55 degrees, but it’s not uncommon to have periods of cooler weather with a chance for snow flurries from time to time. Make sure to attend the Folly Beach Christmas Parade, the New Year’s Eve “Flip Flop Drop” and the Bill Murray Look-A-Like Polar Bear Plunge on New Year’s Day!
