Mount Pleasant, once a quiet fishing and shrimping village, has matured into the state’s fourth largest municipality. Excellent public schools and a mix of old established neighborhoods and new suburban developments make Mount Pleasant attractive to both families and young professionals.

Patriots Point, the picturesque shrimping lane-turned-dining destination of Shem Creek, and the legendary oak allée of Boone Hall Plantation all draw tourists and residents alike. The town boasts an excellent recreation department and an array of stores and restaurants.

Neighborhoods range from the quaint Old Village with its classic soda-fountain pharmacy and the Pitt Street Bridge fishing/walking pier, to the award-winning new urbanism neighborhood of I’On and the adjacent oak-draped streets of Hobcaw, to large planned developments like Park West, Dunes West and Carolina Park further north on Highway 17.

Median home prices listed are for single family detached homes.
