About Area

Shem Creek

With the third largest population among the municipalities of Greater Charleston (5th in the state), Mount Pleasant is arguably the most popular bedroom community in South Carolina. With the major container ship facility at the Wando Port and tourism providing the bulk of its industry, most Greater Charlestonians would agree that the real business of Mount Pleasant is home building, as it has more new neighborhoods and major planned communities than most of the other municipalities combined. Geographically, what Long Island is to Manhattan, Mount Pleasant is to Peninsular Charleston, and where New York has the Brooklyn Bridge, the Queensborough Bridge, and the Triborough Bridge as their primary lifelines across the East River, Greater Charleston has the Ravenel Bridge and the sister bridges that comprise the northeast loop of the Mark Clark Expressway (I-526) to hop the Cooper and Wando Rivers into Mount Pleasant and the larger East Cooper's area. Most of Mount Pleasant's recent growth explosion can be attributed to the recent unpopularity the area suffered before the three new bridges were built. But that's all changed now, and the newly created views from these three bridges offer some of the most spectacular vistas on the East Coast.
