Mount Pleasant is the fifth largest municipality in South Carolina, and for several years it was one of the state's fastest growing areas, literally doubling in population size between 1990 and 2000. As of 2007, the town had an estimated population of 64,707. Sitting just across beautiful Charleston Harbor and connected to the historic city by the new 8 lane Arthur Ravenel Bridge, the charming town of Mount Pleasant is a sought-after residential real estate address. Beyond the old village, Mt. Pleasant extends through well planned neighborhoods to the edge of the Francis Marion National Forest. High waterfront bluffs adorned with antebellum homes and towering oaks offer a town-within-a-town character in Mount Pleasant’s Old Village District. A variety of desirable properties range from waterfront homes, lots and town homes along winding, pristine creeks such as Shem Creek, Hobcaw Creek , and Beresford Creek, the scenic Wando and Cooper rivers, and the expansive marshes along a fifteen-mile stretch the intracostal waterway. For the golfer, there are numerous courses.
