rivertowne mt pleasant sc

It has a mix of high-end deep water homes with private docks as well as more affordable traditional homes on interior lots. These less expensive homes are ideal for buyers wanting a newer home with Low Country style and smaller yards to maintain. All residents in this section have access to the neighborhood's dock (it's one of the largest community docks in Mt. Pleasant).

You'll find some marsh front homes in the Country Club section, but the primary focus here is the golf course. It was designed by Arnold Palmer and recently hosted the LPGA Tour. The semi-private golf club offers memberships, but walk-ins are also welcome.

In a neighborhood where the average home price runs just over $1 million, no expense is spared in recreating the classic details that make Charleston-style homes so unique.

Pleasant. I'On is also conveniently located South of Hwy 41, so it's one of the closest Mt. Pleasant neighborhoods to the peninsula that you'll find.

old village mt pleasant sc

Old Village is one of the only neighborhoods in Mt. Pleasant with historic homes dating back to the early 1800s. In a suburb that's known for its new construction homes and large-scale commercial shopping centers, Old Village has preserved its heritage well since its founding in 1680. You can explore the old Pitt Street commercial district, where you can shop its boutique stores, snack at its Village Bakery, enjoy the soda fountain at Pitt Street Pharmacy, or dine at Old Village Post House.

boone hall plantation mt pleasant sc

Boone Hall is one of the oldest working plantations in the country. In fact, the plantation has designated U-Pick sections where visitors can select their veggies from fields that have been growing crops for more than 320 years. This is a great way (for kids especially) to experience farming firsthand. Around Halloween each year, Boone Hall hosts Fright Nights, which is the largest haunted house event in the state. (For a less scary Halloween experience, check out the corn maze which is also held annually!) The plantation also has your traditional house tour as well as beautiful gardens to explore throughout the year.

At the Patriot's Point Naval and Maritime Museum, you can tour the aircraft carrier Yorktown (the Fighting Lady from World War II). Since this is located on the Mt. Pleasant side of the Charleston Harbor, it has incredible views of the harbor, the Ravenel Bridge, and downtown from the main deck. You'll see a great collection of warplanes in the hangar bay and the flight deck of Yorktown. With admission, you can also tour the submarine Clamagore (which served during the Cold War) and see the Medal of Honor Museum.

The Pitt Street Park (pictured) in Old Mt. Pleasant is a favorite among locals. Prior to the Revolutionary War, a plank bridge made from barrels spanned across the inlet separating Mt. Pleasant from Sullivan's Island. Later in 1864, the crew of the Hunley used the bridge to test drive the submarine in Breach Inlet. In 1898, the bridge was rebuilt so that a trolley could be used to carry passengers across the inlet and has since been converted into a park.

With the great water access, you'll find in Mt. Pleasant, boating is a popular pastime. And you don't have to have a private dock at your house in order to enjoy the water.
