Mount Pleasant Texas is a small town located in Northeast Texas. This town has all kinds of community gatherings like we have our annual local fair which has a farm animal contest, an academic, best homemade jam and best picture contest. During the fair you can ride the carnival rides, eat from the variety of concessions stands and just enjoy yourself. We also have country festivals 6 times a year with live music, food courts and a lot dancing. Also, we have our annual Christmas parade at our downtown with all the beautiful floats. This town has thought me that you can have fun year around within our community.

Mount Pleasant is a small town of 16,273 and is the largest town in Titus County. I've been living here all my life and I can honestly say it's a real nice town to live in if you want something peaceful and small. Almost everyone knows each other and there's a very low crime rate. Though, if you're looking for things to do, then Mount Pleasant might not be your cup of tea. Since it's such a small town, things to do are very limited. Mount Pleasant is more suited for those who want to settle down and enjoy peace and quiet.
