Mount pleasant

In recent years, Mount Pleasant has become one of Charleston's most sought after areas in which to live and work. This community, which is bisected by Highway 17, serves as both a retreat from the hustle and bustle of downtown Charleston and a destination unto itself, with shopping, dining and historical monuments to complement downtown's more well-known venues. Nowadays, Mount Pleasant is accessible from downtown via the Arthur Ravenel, Jr. bridge (which replaced the Grace Memorial and Silas N. Pearman bridges in 2005).

Old Village

Dating back to the 1800's, the Old Village served as a summer reprieve from the heat of downtown Charleston. Nearby Shem Creek provided cool breezes and a place for fishing, commerce and trade. Today, Shem Creek remains the historical epicenter for Mount Pleasant as well as a hub for waterfront dining and nightlife.
