Mount Pleasant is the premiere suburb in the Charleston, SC area. Beautiful neighborhoods, clean and safe with great schools. Traffic is an issue but is being addressed actively. Mostly transplants from the north live here. Top shelf recreational facilities and esay access to the beach. Historic Charleston right over the bridge.

Expensive to live here - 9/30/2013

Wages are low especially for professionals. Employers know you want to live near the beach so they don't pay well. You'll do better in Atlanta or Charlotte. You may hear about companies like Blackbaud but they have a very high turnover. Electricity is super high & it is super hot here so you will use a lot. Housing is expensive plus you will pay much more for flood & homeowners insurances here because of our coastal area. Rentals are in short supply and are expensive. Want to be close to downtown or beaches, expect to pay a whole lot more. New car prices are high. You will need to go to Charlotte to get a competitive price. Flying to and from Charleston airport is high. When you look up cost of living, it generally brings up North Charleston area which is a whole lot less than Mount Pleasant. Don't be fooled!

Best Place to live ever - 7/17/2013

My fiance and I moved here for less money because the quality of life is amazing. We love it and only wish we could make more money.

Disappointed - 12/26/2010

Because I was military and then worked for major corporations, Mount Pleasant (and the Charleston metro area) is the 9th place I have lived as an adult. I came here with optimism that Charleston could be my 3rd favorite place. But after experiencing (personally in my retail business) the high property crime, possibly the worst drivers in the country, the relatively low level of educational attainment, and mediocre quality of restaurants and shopping, I am ready to get out of here. To try and balance my comments, downtown Charleston is a beautiful and historical city, and is near nice beaches. Cost-of-living not bad, and people are friendly. Mount Pleasant is one of the nicer places in the greater Charleston area, and public schools are good. But for me, I am hoping to relocate to a more educated, affluent city with much more to offer within the next six months. BTW, I put Charleston number 8 out of the 9 places I have lived.

LOVE IT - 1/29/2010

Okay, So I might be a little bias because I am from Mount Pleasant(but now living in Miami, FL :(). However, the BEST place to live. The people are polite, attractive, and fun. Plus the history is rich, interesting and EXPLOSIVE! There is so much to do, see, eat and smell in Charleston, SC. The high places to go are Patriots Point, Battery, Market Street, Long Point area and anywhere downtown. Of course people will always be bias to the way we good OLE' Charlestonians live, but HELL we live it the best :) Have fun, visit, east FISH and YEEEEEHAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW:)!!!!!!!

Climate in Mt. Pleasant, SC - 12/6/2009

I have lived in Mt. Pleasant, SC for over 6 years, and I think it has a great year round climate. Initially I noticed that Mt. Pleasant only got rain occassionally. It very seldon gets a deluge or long periods of rain, accordingly, we don't have flooding nor excessive wetness. Further, it has a generally warm climate from spring through fall. Also, in the winter it seldom gets below freezing. The average winter climate is from low 40s to low 60s. Of course, I have never seen snow in Mt. Pleasant since I've been here. The climate is great and being retired, the cost of living is great too.

Mount Pleasant, SC a Great Place to Live - 6/11/2008

After living in Mount Pleasant, SC for the past 3 years it truly is a gem. With great local golfing, fishing and the Isle of Palms and Sullivan's Island beaches this place takes the cake. Not to mention great restuarants and the history and pestige that come along with living right next to historic Charleston, SC. If I were going to retire Mount Pleasant would definetly be on my list.

Be prepared to answer the constant question of natives, "Where do you live". And being vague isn't accepted. They want to know exact address so they can categorize you.

Where does the money come from? - 3/7/2007

I have been living in and out of Mt. Pleasant since I went to middle and high school here in the early nineties. It has fantastic schools(probably the best public schools in the Charleston area), and activities for families. It is a growing town, new subdivisions are popping up all over in areas I remember as wooded and beautiful. Also, the town oozes money (as you can tell from the median house prices), and I have never been able to figure out what people do to drive the cars they do, and live in the huge houses you see...But if you like city, or suburban living, you will love it here.
