About Mt. Pleasant

East of Charleston, across the Cooper River, lies Mt.Pleasant.  A self‑contained city, Mt. Pleasant and its surrounding areas can offer just about anything to anyone.  Just a few miles from downtown Charleston yet still distinct, Mt. Pleasant has grown steadily over the past years. Thomas Waring, editor of Charleston's News and Courier, once wrote: "Mt. Pleasant is so intimate a part of Charleston, yet so positively itself.  The sentimental heritage of a community that has something worth remembering is among its greatest assets."

Crisscrossed by rivers and marsh, Mt. Pleasant offers unparalleled salt-water fishing and is also well endowed with many parks including athletic fields, tennis courts and playground equipment. The Isle of Palms and Sullivan's Island, two of Charleston finest beaches are within a couple of miles of anywhere in Mt. Pleasant.

A Mayor‑Council form governs the communities of Mt. Pleasant, Sullivan's Island and Isle of Palms.  Full time police and fire protections are also provided to the area.  Mt. Pleasant offers a wide variety of shopping with a multitude of neighborhood specialty shops and regional shopping centers with a number more in the planning stages.  Churches of all denominations are situated throughout the area or in nearby Charleston.

The East Cooper area boasts a wide variety of single-family homes, condominiums and town homes to suit every price range, every interest and every family.
