The downtown area was pretty dead all my life but Mt Pleasant is currently going through a total revitalization. The buildings in our small downtown area are being renovated and new shops are coming ( antique stores,new pharmacy,coffee shops etc...) We are getting a new dog park,splash pad and they are currently building a brand new courthouse. The elementary school is awesome and the high school has improved drastically with the new principal . The new principal has put Mt Pleasant High on the map. I am not as fond of the middle school. If you are looking for a fast pace or are single on the dating scene i wouldn’t suggest Mt Pleasant for you although Nashville is only 1 hour away. It’s like a brand new start for Mt. Pleasant and a lot of new and exciting things are happening in our town. If you are looking for a small town to raise a family or to retire this is the place for you. Me as a person of color would also like to say everyone feels welcome

Mount Pleasant is a small, rural town in middle Tennessee. It's quiet and peaceful most days, right off the bypass despite this. It's a safe place for children and adults alike, and I see many young people walking to and from school without much adult supervision.
Like many small towns, everyone seems to know each other in some way, whether it be directly or "hey aren't you so-and-so's relative?". It adds heavily to the safe environment. We have a grocery store, two pharmacies, a pizza place, fast food joints and plenty of places to shop for necessities. It isn't much, but Mount Pleasant provides all the things one could possibly need, without much extraneous businesses to take away the focus of the small town aesthetic.
Love this town! Great place to work and schools are amazingly creative. Kids have fun here! Town is full of community art and lots of great little shops.
