The Charleston area has many distinct communities. However, they are all categorized by access to water, wildlife and the uniquely preserved history of the Southeastern U.S. port town. Just across the Arthur Ravenel, Jr., Bridge to the east of Charleston's historic downtown, Mt. Pleasant, SC, stretches along the Wando River until ending at the vast Francis Marion National Forest. The southern end of the town is right across the river from Charleston's exclusive Daniel Island neighborhood via I-526. Sullivan's Island, Isle of Palms and Dewees Island separate Mount Pleasant from the Atlantic coast. The town does offer some waterfront property, however. It borders on a number of picturesque waterways, including the Copahee Sound, Gray Bay, the Charleston Harbor and the Wando River. (read more about living in Mount Pleasant)
Some of Charleston's most famous attractions are, in fact, in Mount Pleasant. For example, the Patriot's Point Naval Museum with its docked submarine, destroyer and aircraft carrier — and its attached golf course — are at the westernmost tip of the neighborhood. There are a variety of neighborhoods: access to nature, sweeping views, suburban developments and modern living are all available. There are also a variety of shops in several commercial areas, mostly along Coleman Boulevard and around the major highways that run through town. Finally, there are plenty of opportunities to explore and appreciate nature and history at the Laurel Hill or Palmetto Islands Parks, or at the Boone Hall Plantation and Gardens museum complex.
Mount Pleasant combines the characteristics of small-town charm, urban convenience and suburban luxury. Somewhere between the hustle and bustle of downtown Charleston and the refined, relaxed lifestyle of Sullivan's Island, Mount Pleasant is a town with something for everyone.
