Nestled along the bluffs of Charleston Harbor and home of cooling summer breezes, Mount Pleasant is a warm, welcoming town perfectly positioned between historic downtown Charleston and the beautiful beaches of Sullivan’s Island and Isle of Palms.

With roots that date back to Native Americans nearly 4,000 years ago, Mount Pleasant continues to lure generations of nature lovers with its abundant beauty — from rivers and tidal creeks to verdant marshes and plantations.

Time To Play!

Today, recreational opportunities abound at an array of area parks, green spaces, indoor and outdoor rec facilities. The nine acre Memorial Waterfront Park includes a fishing/observation pier, playground, visitor center, walking trails, open-air pavilion, and military memorial. In addition, outdoor enthusiasts can golf on award-winning golf courses, kayak through winding tidal creeks, and fish, swim and kiteboard at nearby beaches.

Shoppers, start your engines! Mount Pleasant is home to an array of independent shops where you’ll find everything from handcrafted jewelry and antiques to art and unique gifts crafted by local artisans. Plus, you’ll find brand name retail stores and abundant, free parking. There’s simply no reason to go home empty-handed!

Markets, Music and More

Art, cultural, and community events are an integral part of the fabric of Mount Pleasant. Get in on the local action this spring and summer with an array of events, including the Tuesday afternoon Farmers Market, June’s Sweetgrass Cultural Arts Festival, live music at the Party in the Park Concert Series, and fireworks and family fun on the 4th of July Blast at Patriots Point.

In addition to being mere minutes from downtown Charleston’s award-winning restaurants, Mount Pleasant boasts its own bevy of delicious dining destinations — with more than 300 restaurants serving up everything from Lowcountry staples like shrimp and grits to Southwest cuisine, traditional American fare, fresh, local seafood, and creative ethnic choices. We suggest you bring a sense of adventure and an appetite.

Whether you’re hitting the beach, kayaking on the creek, teeing off on an award-winning golf course, or simply relaxing with the family, you’ll soon know the relaxing, warm and welcoming magic that makes Mount Pleasant a place like no other — and a feeling well worth holding on to.
