I would love to recommend to you an update to the Mt. Pleasant section of your site. Our town in unique cooperation with Charleston County and the State of South Carolina, opened up the Waterfront Memorial Park. This park features the first structure dedicated to the celebration of Gullah-Geechee culture on the U.S. Gullah-Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor. The park also boasts the new Mt. Pleasant Visitor’s Center, a gorgeous Pier and stunning War Memorial not to mention several facilities for family relaxation and enjoyment. The Sweetgrass Pavilion and space in the Visitor’s Center is available for event rental (cooperriverroom.com). The park is conveniently situated just off the Ravenel Bridge on the way to Patriot’s Point.

Mount Pleasant South Carolina is separated from Charleston, by the Cooper River. For many years it was primarily populated seasonally by Charleston residents wealthy enough to afford summer homes across the river from the Charleston peninsula. The population of Mount Pleasant South Carolina was centered in an area of the town now known as “The Old Village.” It was determined in 1928 that a bridge from the Charleston Peninsula to Mount Pleasant South Carolina was needed. Spanning Town Creek and the Cooper River and crossing the uninhabited Drum Island, the two-lane Grace Memorial Bridge opened for traffic as a toll bridge 17 months later. A second and larger bridge, the Silas N. Pearman Bridge, opened in 1966, further connecting Mount Pleasant South Carolina to its mother city. On July 16, 2005, the brand new, eight-lane Arthur Ravenel, Jr., bridge opened for automotive traffic, replacing the two aging South Carolina bridges.
