Mount Pleasant Reviews
Rating 4.03 out of 5 144 reviews
Overall Mount Pleasant is a nice community. Infrastructure needs improving, more options for commuting safely like bike lanes and driver education about cyclist rights would be nice.
The schools are very nice and there is plenty to do/eat. The beach, downtown and historical North Charleston is a drive away! I do wish the cost of living here wasn't so high.
It is pretty chill. Mount Pleasant is a sweet city. Beautiful place with beautiful people. There are plenty of outdoor activities.
Everyone is super friendly and nice! The food is great and we have a lot of nice stores. In addition, it's a beautiful city that's kept up very well. It's also nice that we're so close to Downtown Charleston and we have a lot of great schools.
Amazing town to live in. Very pretty area. Always clean and looks nice. I have lived here for over two years.
I just moved here and I couldn't be happier. Everything you need is close by and there is always something to do.
Pricey to live in, but safe. Good schools. Predominately white. Traffic can be bad, because more people are moving in every day.
I like how people are friendly. It has beautiful places all over the town to see, including the beach.
I like Mount Pleasant a lot because there is a lot to do between beaches and the city of Charleston. I think that it is a great place to start a family.
I have lived in Mount Pleasant for 10 years now. Like the rest of the metro, the population is exploding which results in terrible traffic, absurdly high cost of living, and overdevelopment in general. That is probably Charleston in general's greatest weakness. However, Mt pleasant has the most development out of the area so cost of living is the highest here. On the bright side, crime is very low especially in the north part of town, the southern part has one or two bad spots like all towns but it's not a huge deal. Be prepared for year-round intesnive heat and humidity which only contributes to hire electric and A/C bills. In general the city is beginning to lose its charm since so many people are moving here but what can you do. In short, if you have the money, Mt pleasant is an great place to live with decent schools and easy access to 17. However, you might be better off choosing one of the more affordable areas like James Island, which has a lower population density.
Mount Pleasant has been a great city for us to start building our family in. Were love being close to the beach, near an airport and living in a community with lots of amenities.
I went to high school in Mt. Pleasant and moved back as an adult, and I absolutely love this city. I would have been a completely different person if I had not been exposed to the gentility and hospitality of the people here, and I am proud to raise my children here. If I have one complaint, it's that the development has been irresponsible, and there are parts of the town that used to be nostalgic and beautiful but are now built up with tall buildings and little green space.
Has great shopping but the infrastructure is lacking. The housing is so expensive and all the homes feel like they are on top of each other. Such a lovely town but the influx of new people isn’t supported very well.
Mount Pleasant is a great place to live, with a lot to do. Downtown Charleston is very close and so is the beach. There are a lot of great places to eat as well.
This town has changed a lot over the years. I personally do not like the culture. It is a very wealthy culture and also I come first. People drive vary dangerously due to lack of patience. There is a severe lack of things to do in the area besides eating. This lack of activities leads to a large drug culture for a suburban town.
I love the scenery and nature, housing is good and safe for kids and the schools are amazing! Traffic is horrible! don't leave your house during rush hour.
Beautiful area, tons of little nooks to see nature (marsh, river, birds), very close to the bustle of Charleston, lots of activities and shopping, very family friendly.
