Many of the towns and villages in Follo are situated beside the Oslofjord, for example Drøbak, Hvitsten and Son, and there are several beaches in the region which are very popular during the summer months, among residents and visitors alike.
Son, Drøbak and Hvitsten first became known as artists' colonies in the mid-nineteenth century.

Today the region is a good option if you are seeking cultural experiences, if you want to explore the Oslofjord or enjoy outdoor activities such as golfing and fishing.
