Mount Pleasant, South Carolina

More beautiful beaches await you in Mount Pleasant, though there’s other fun to be had. If you’re hungry upon arrival, stop in for some simple, delicious fare at Five Loaves Cafe; if you’re craving a burger and beer, head to sister restaurant Sesame Burger & Bar. It’s hard to find a better excuse to shop than the offerings inside Gwynn’s of Mount Pleasant. After your retail therapy, stop in to see the gorgeous scenery inside the Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens, America’s most photographed plantation. Pick your own strawberries, tomatoes, and pumpkins at the plantation’s agricultural arm, Boone Hall Farms, which also sells goods at a local market. And because you can’t stop in Mount Pleasant without taking advantage of the water activities at your fingertips, visit Coastal Expeditions to explore the array of possibilities, including kayaking and paddleboarding tours, boat charters and a ferry ride to Bull’s Island. If you’re still hungry on your way out of town, stop in for one of the South’s best hot dogs at Jack’s Cosmic Dogs.
