Old Village Mt. Pleasant

Old Village Mt. Pleasant, SC    
Is there any more charming village than old town Mt. Pleasant? With the historic homes, beautiful gardens and shade tree streets I hope the inhabitants are as happy as I imagine them to be.
Old Village:  Mount Pleasant’s most historic neighborhood, once only accessed via ferry boat, The Old Village is a special place that was put on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973 in order to preserve its architectural styles and encourage harmonious growth and development in the area.
The Old Village sits right on the Charleston harbor, with spectacular views of downtown Charleston and the Ravenel Bridge. Nestled quietly amid grand live oaks with a ‘Normal Rockwell-esque’ setting, it’s only a hop, skip and jump to the beautiful Sullivans Island and Shem Creek. The shops in the village have been preserved as well so you can still sit at the soda fountain and get a milk shake at the Pitt Street Pharmacy or eat a fine meal at The Post House restaurant.
