Mount Pleasant SC is a suburban town in the metropolitan area of Charleston, South Carolina, located in Charleston County. It is the fifth largest municipality in South Carolina. As of 2006, the town had an estimated population of 59,113 with predictions of 95,000 by 2025. It is the 3rd largest municipality in this metro behind Charleston and North Charleston. What was once a quaint little town where everyone knew each other has grown to be a thriving community within the last 15 years. Once accessible only via daily ferries from the peninsula, this coastal city with its protected harbor, natural beauty and perfect climate is one of the best places to live in the nation. Mt. Pleasant has maintained its “small town” feeling, despite tremendous growth in recent years. Now the 6th largest city in the State, this town was recently named one of the most desirable places to live in the United States. Couple that with one of the best school systems in the county and it’s easy to see why growing families, baby boomers and retirees find Mt. Pleasant SC to be a special place to call home. Mt. Pleasant SC is a community rich with history and with culture. The historic district called the Old Village boasts grand homes that rival those found in downtown Charleston. Patriots Point Maritime and Naval Museum, home of the USS Yorktown, provides for a day full of seafaring history. Shem Creek is home to a fleet of local fishing & shrimp boats, deep sea fishing boats to charter as well as award winning restaurants. The newly built Towne Centre, an urban outdoor mall is a shopping and dining destination for both residents and visitors. Major national retailers, in addition to upscale boutiques, provide a diverse shopping experience…something for everyone!

Anyone who crosses the new Arthur Ravenal Bridge into Mt. Pleasant will never forget the view. Directly across the Cooper River from Charleston, Mt. Pleasant dates its founding to 1680. Today, the city carefully preserves its rich heritage and small-town appeal. The projected 2010 population for Mt. Pleasant is 75,602. The population numbers for this South Carolina thriving community certainly make it qualify as a “city.” But, as the name implies, the “town” of Mt. Pleasant is an aproprate description for the state of mind and the attitude of the businesses you’ll find there. Although it serves as a major bedroom community to Downtown Charleston, it’s still a viable community unto itself. Patriots Point, the world’s largest naval and maritime museum complex, is Mt. Pleasant’s biggest attraction. It is dominated by the aircraft carrier Yorktown, World War II’s famous “Fighting Lady.” You can also board tour boats at Patriots Point to visit Fort Sumter National Monument, where the Civil War began. Adjacent to Patriots Point is Patriots Point Links, one of the area’s most popular public golf courses. The 18-hole, par 72 layout provides spectacular views of Charleston Harbor and the Peninsula’s skyline. The Mt. Pleasant/Isle of Palms Visitor Center at the corner of U.S. Highway 17 and McGrath Darby Boulevard is a good place to start when exploring Mt. Pleasant. Another reason Mount Pleasant SC is one of the most desirable places to live in the South East is because of its proximity to The Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island Beaches. On Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island you will find Charleston’s luxury homes as well as sandy beaches and Sunny...
