Mount Pleasant surely lives up to its name. With some of the best schools in the state, beaches just a quick bike ride away and everything you need just a quick drive from home, there’s no wonder why it was named one of “America’s 50 Best Cities to Live” by 24/7 Wall Street in 2018.
Like many areas around South Carolina, Mount Pleasant was also home to many plantations. Some of which are still around today like Boone Hall which is famous for its Avenue of Oaks leading up to the grand mansion house. This small suburban town started to grow in the 1970s until it became one for the largest in South Carolina. The expansion of the Charleston port, Cooper River Bridge construction and new major roads helped Mount Pleasant become the convenient, modern city that it is today.
Families love Mount Pleasant. All of its schools have consistently been awarded top-notch ratings by the South Carolina Department of education. There is also everything you need at your fingertips. Mount Pleasant is filled with shops from well-loved brands and amazing restaurants that people from all over the county drive to. And if that’s enough, Mount Pleasant is a short 5-15 minutes away from the Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island which are some of the best beaches in the state.
