The citizens of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina cordially invite you to come and discover life in the Lowcountry. From the striking natural beauty to our laid-back environment, our ‘All American City’ boasts a charm all its own.
One of Mount Pleasant’s most celebrated features is its proximity to some of the most spectacular beaches in the state. In particular, Folly Beach is a popular piece of frontage not only for its pristine sandy shores, but for the great eateries near the water, and its fantastic fishing pier.
The splendour of the great outdoors can be further appreciated at Palmetto Island County Park. People of all ages will enjoy exploring the 943-acres of tropical vegetation sprinkled with biking paths, boardwalks and picnic sites.
If golfing is more up your alley, admire the scenery while perfecting your putt on one of the four championship courses, including the stunning par 72 course stretching over 7,100 yards at Charleston National Country Club.
In addition to the awe-inspiring natural surroundings, Mount Pleasant possesses a rich history just waiting to be discovered.
Lined by nearly a hundred moss draped trees, journey through the shaded avenue of oaks to Boone Hall Plantation. Originally a cotton plantation, today guests are encouraged to come and view buildings dating back to the 1750’s and learn the history of the majestic house, slave cabins, old smoke house, and cotton gin.
If you have an infinity for all things Navy, you simply cannot leave town without visiting Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum. As one of the state’s most popular tourist attractions, join the 270,000 captivated visitors that come each year to explore exciting attractions such as the cold war memorial, a collection of priceless war planes, the recreation of a US base in Vietnam, and the piece de resistance, the incredible fleet of National Historic Landmark ships, including the USS Yorktown.
