Just north of Folly Beach County Park, there is a firm, well pronounced tree grown from the soft sands of the Carolina beaches. As the sun rises and sets, it stands firm with one very important purpose, making your dreams come true. As you get closer to this tree, you will find a heart, shells guarded closely inside the branches and necklaces of shells marking the spot where so many have come to ask for a wish.
Not only is this one of the most spectacular locations in the Lowcountry to witness the sunset, but it offers remarkable solitude for romance and reflection.
Do you have a wish you are hoping will come true? A yearning for love, a sick one you wish well, hopes of accomplishing a dream or something very genuine and simple? Here is your chance. Find a special shell or make something unique and offer it to the wishing tree. Say your wish under the warmth of the Southern sky and wait.
Make the Wishing Tree a part of your Lowcountry pilgrimage.
