http://www.live5news.com/story/35349109/new-pier-could-be-coming-to-folly-beach Better shott it now before it's gone. The article is very vague. I heard the existing one will be dismantled and replaced and extended further out. Another rumor is that a new pier will be built beside the existing one, then the existing one will be dismantled. The pier is one of the better spots along Folly. I don't think it'll be ruined long term but definitely disrupted.
