Mount Pleasant Reviews
Shady tree-lined streets, walk to every thing you need, close to transit, young vibrant and diverse neighbors, historic well preserved houses. Great restaurants of all kinds from little Central American papuerias to Michelen rated fine dining. The best dive bar in DC (The Raven).
I'm an 18-year-old high school student and I grew up in Mount Pleasant and it has always and still is the best experience. Growing up here introduced me to people from all around the world and its such a diverse community. About 10 years ago it wasn't as good as it is today, this neighborhood improved so much with its safety, better job opportunities, and even with its public school. My whole family grew up and people who I grew up with since 2nd grade still live here and we always go out to eat to the different kinds of restaurant they have. During the summer every Saturday morning a small market comes and sells fruits and it's always packed because people enjoy the things that small market sells. I would highly recommend to just at least come and visit Mount Pleasent if you're looking for a place that's diverse, fun, and safe.
My family and I moved here from Europe two years ago and we are constantly pinching ourselves as we thank our luck of choosing Mt Pleasant as a place to live. The Main Street has some cute shops and boutique cafes but what we love the most is how close it is to nature and Rock Creek Park. It is an ideal blend of urban and rural with great walking and really friendly, laid back residents. Truly an amazing find.
