Mount Pleasant is generally a pretty safe town. There is not a lot of violence or drug problems. However, the public school system is very weak. There is not a lot of funding out into the schools so the technology is often times behind and they do not have the best teachers. There is dozens of good restaurants to go to and lots of popular food chains such as Qdoba, Chipotle, Mcdonalds and many others. With Foxconn incoming, there could be an increase in job opportunities. Overall, I would say Mount Pleasant is an average town that is safe, with a decent amount of job opportunities but with a poor school system

Here in Racine, we get all 4 seasons. Summers range from 70-85 degrees and on occasion we will hit 90+ degrees. In fall, the temperature gets around 40-50 degrees, perfect for the leaves to change color, and hot apple cider! Winter likes to change on us. Some winters, we will have feet of snow while other no snow. The temperature also varies. Spring is a very pretty time of the year, when the flowers start to bloom and the baby animals are bouncing along. In the Spring we accumulate a lot of rain and thunderstorms.
All of the businesses in the area are kept clean and tidy. The workers are very nice, friendly and very willing to help customers! There are many strip malls in the area, one is a clothing mall, another one have a grocery store, clothes stores, food places and hair saloons. The last I will talk about is a strip mall has craft stores, a pet store, video stores, and even a grocery store.
