I currently live here when I am home from touring ht country for my job and it is a little piece of heaven. I am used to being caged in when we are constantly in the cities on the road and when I come home I can breathe clean air, go for a run and not run into a single sole, and just enjoy the calm country roads. It is amazing to run into friends and family along the way though and catch up and even if we move away for a little while we all end up back together again. Everyone knows one another or something about your family and its always nice to see everyone at the Festivals and parades around the area. It truly is home for me and I love it with all my heart.

Mount Pleasant is a very peaceful place to live. There are some neighbors, but not like New York City. We have grocery stores and fast food restaurants nearby. Winters can get pretty chilly and snowy, but summer can be very hot.
It's a very beautiful well taken care of town. The people are polite and there is a lot of history background.
