— Mount Pleasant —
Located across the Cooper River from Downtown Charleston, the town of Mount Pleasant is rich in history, having grown from a colonial village into the flourishing suburban community we treasure today.
Mount Pleasant invokes a small town feel, flush with waterfront dining and marshview homes, while also furnishing many amenities for its residents.
Few Southern towns of its size offer such a diverse nature — from world class shopping at Towne Centre to sunset dining on Shem Creek – not to mention that Mount Pleasant also contains many extraordinary neighborhoods.

Why We Love Mount Pleasant
Spend an afternoon on Shem Creek. The freshest seafood bites, watching the boaters and kayakers stroll up to the docks at Red’s Ice House. A view of sunset over the marshes so exquisite that the outdoor patios at Vickery’s and Saltwater Cowboys are designed for it.
A weekend of boating in and out of Charleston Harbor Marina, with fresh cocktails on the dock and a panoramic view from the Cooper River of Historic Charleston and the Ravenel Bridge. A spring day is perfect for an 18-hole round at Patriots Point, the River Club at Dunes West, or a number of other outstanding golf courses.
Summertime means beach weather, and from Mount Pleasant the sandy stations of Sullivan’s Island are a bicycle ride from the Old Village – while the endless stretches of dunes at Isle of Palms are a causeway away.
While weekends East of the Cooper are the stuff of family photo albums, the routine is made extraordinary as well – world-class shopping experiences at Towne Centre, bakeries, sandwich shops, and Whole Foods, and my favorite little garden center at Abide A While.
