Movie Theatre
“When the weather isn't beach and downtown friendly, we will go to the movies a Town Center in Mt. Pleasant. Town Center is also a beautiful shopping area with restaurants. It is not a mall which is a good thing in our opinion!”

Museum
“n 1743, the son of Major John Boone planted live oak trees, arranging them in two evenly spaced rows. This spectacular approach to his home symbolizes southern heritage and will take root in your memory for many years to come. It would take two centuries for the massive, moss-draped branches to meet overhead, forming today’s natural corridor and a scene that NBC Daytime television says is “a must see stop on any trip to Charleston, S.C.””
