Where Are the Best Areas to Live in Mount Pleasant?

Mount Pleasant AreasMount Pleasant, South Carolina.  Such a great place to live!  It borders historic downtown Charleston, while also bordering Isle of Palms and Sullivans Island beaches.  As one of the first locations settled outside of downtown, this location has one of (if not THE) largest draws of any community in Charleston.  I've personally seen Mount Pleasant grow tremendously over the decades, and while 'change is inevitable, growth is optional', I've loved the growth that Mount Pleasant has experienced.  The last census says that Mount Pleasant's population is right around 92,000.  Which is the 4th largest city in the state of South Carolina.

But with such a large surface area and population, how does one…

Follow the yellow brick road to Charleston!

So if you are not from Charleston, South Carolina and are making a move to this wonderful city- how do you navigate the subtle but sometimes drastic differences between the areas surrounding Charleston? Because each and every area within Charleston has its own vibe. Its own personality, and subculture.

Most people moving to Charleston have an idea of what they’re looking for.  Whether they’ve created this idea/potential reality over the span of a number of years, or whether they’ve gone back to their roots and would like to live in something similar to their childhood home- we all have our own ideas of a perfect place to live.

But how are you expected to move to a city where you don’t know anyone, and don’t know the difference between living in…

Mount Pleasant Towne Centre near neighborhoodsSo if you had to choose the best Mount Pleasant neighborhood to live in, where would you choose?  First of all, I already know that we’d all like to be as close to downtown Charleston as possible, and either live on the water, or have water or marsh views, correct?  Or how about finding that perfect charming house in The Old Village at a reasonable price or even a steal?  I’ve been living here for over 30 years and I can tell you that the secret is out about Mount Pleasant, and there are no “steals” for Mount Pleasant neighborhoods close to town.  Good deals, yes- but steals are hard to come by.

If you’re not from the area, say from out of town- it might be somewhat frustrating with all of the choices.  Especially if you are relocating to Charleston and…

Shrimp boats along Shem Creek It's that time of year again for the Mount Pleasant Blessing of the Fleet & Seafood Festival! Come on out to Waterfront Park, Sunday April 29th from 11:30am to 6:00pm.

This wonderful event used to be located near Alhambra Hall in the Old Village, but since it has outgrown the original location- it has been relocated to Mount Pleasant's Waterfront Park at the foot of the Ravenel Bridge.

This festival highlights some of the best local seafood that Charleston has to offer, and is community-supported benediction that calls for a safe and prosperous shrimping season in Charleston! It should be a great event this year with live music, local crafts, kids activities, a boat parade, and of course the ceremonial blessing of the shrimp/fishing fleet here in…

I've been showing a lot of property in the Mount Pleasant subdivision of Belle Hall recently, so I thought I'd share some of the statistics and information for the neighborhood.  If most of you don't know about this great Mount Pleasant community, it's becoming more and more popular.  Because of the fantastic location to downtown Charleston and the Sullivans Island and Isle of Palms beaches, Belle Hall is quickly becoming a favorite for those retiring to Charleston, or those that would like to move up into a better location and quality of home.

Belle Hall is a newer neighborhood with a few different subsections.  The most affordable subsections (and older) were built in the 90’s and are priced between 200K and 300K.  Some of the newer subsections are…
