The Town of Mount Pleasant honors the old while celebrating the new. Popular historic sites for residents and visitors alike include Boone Hall Plantation, Charles Pickney National Historic site, Alhambra Hall and the Pitt Street commercial district in the Old Village.

Residents also enjoy an active lifestyle, supported by the Town of Mount Pleasant who manages over twenty-five recreation facilities including parks, playgrounds, sports fields, tennis courts and community centers. If you enjoy a round of golf, you’ll appreciate the variety of options found in Mt. Pleasant including Patriots Point, Snee Farm, Bulls Bay, Charleston National, Rivertowne and Dunes West. Whether it’s a brisk walk on the pedestrian lane of the Ravenel Bridge, a bike ride on the Pitt Street Bridge, or a nature walk at the 943-acre Palmetto Islands County Park, there is never a shortage of things to do.
Mount Pleasant offers a wide range of real estate options including single family homes, townhomes and condos. Historic, 18th century homes are concentrated in the Old Village near Shem Creek, while newer homes can be found throughout the town. The Town has clear strategy when it comes to smart growth and planning, with the majority of new homes being built in north Mt. Pleasant (north of the Isle of Palms connector) and older, established homes in south Mt. Pleasant (near the Ravenel Bridge).
