Learn about Mount Pleasant

Mount Pleasant, once a quiet fishing village, has grown into the state’s fourth largest municipality. Award-winning public schools and a mix of old established neighborhoods and new planned communities make Mount Pleasant attractive to both families and young professionals.

Patriot's Point, the picturesque shrimping lane-turned-dining destination of Shem Creek, and the iconic oak allée of Boone Hall Plantation draw tourists and residents alike. The town offers an excellent outdoor recreation and an array of stores and restaurants.

Neighborhoods range from the quaint Old Village, with its classic soda-fountain pharmacy and the Pitt Street Bridge fishing/walking pier, to the award-winning new urbanism neighborhood of I’On and the adjacent oak-draped streets of Hobcaw, to sprawling planned communities with resort-style amenities, such as Park West, Dunes West and Carolina Park further north on Highway 17. You'll find an array of home sizes and styles, with many that offer dock access to the Wando River and the area's many tidal creeks.

Mount Pleasant neighbors the beach towns of Isle of Palms and Sullivans Island. Charleston International Airport and historic downtown Charleston are within a quick drive.
