Preferred for its low crime rates, excellent public schools, large lineup of amenities and close proximity to area beaches and the historic downtown peninsula, Mount Pleasant has long been a popular Charleston suburb. Known as the East Cooper area by locals, the town is comprised of two sections: the lower, older part closest to the Cooper River and the upper section that has been developed over the last few decades thanks to the area’s desirability among residents. Besides exhibiting a genuine close-knit suburban feel, Mount Pleasant welcomes its share of tourists drawn by the history of the area, fantastic shopping and beaches that are just minutes away. The town’s leaders work tirelessly to ensure a high standard of living in the East Cooper area.
