Who says a small town can’t have an awesome brewery? Westbrook Brewing Co. offers brewery tours, a tasting room, and 47 unique beers on tap.

The Boone Hall Plantation and Gardens is America’s oldest working plantation. It’s also the host of some of Mount Pleasant’s best community events and live music. We especially love our town’s famous winter Oyster Festival.

Whether you’re interested in shopping for fresh vegetables from the Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market, or trying the traditional fine dining of restaurants like Opal, there’s plenty for you to love.

3. Old Village

This historic district on the Charleston Harbor is home to beautiful colonial and antebellum homes, along with unique boutiques and restaurants. Be sure to visit Pitt Street Pharmacy, where you can still get an old-fashioned ice cream soda.

The Town of Mount Pleasant calls the Mount Pleasant Pier “Mount Pleasant’s crown jewel,” and we can see why.

Talk a walk down the pier for gorgeous views of Charleston Harbor; or come dance under the covered pavilion, relax on the bench swings, or shop for gifts and sweet treats.

1. Barrier Island Beaches

In Mount Pleasant, you’re never far from the water. The town offers South Carolina’s only access to the barrier island beaches of Sullivan’s Island and the Isle of Palms. You’ll love their white sands and sparkling blue waters as much as we do.
