Located across the Cooper River from Downtown Charleston, the town of Mount Pleasant is rich in history, having grown from a colonial village into a flourishing community closely integrated with Charleston.
Mount Pleasant invokes a convergence of personalities: a quaint town with roots as a fishing village, to neighborhoods of stately homes on adjacent to golf courses and deepwater rivers, to planned communities of Lowcountry style homes integrated with their own schools and businesses.
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.
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.
