Mt. Pleasant South Carolina; Money Magazines 100th Best Place to Live!!!!!

Real Estate Agent with Carolina One Real Estate; Realtor, SFR,ABR,CIAS

Well,  I personally think Mt. Pleasant, SC should have been higher on the list, but what a wonderful honor!

Mt. Pleasant, SC was named Money Magazine's 100th Best Place to live in the United States.

So how did Money magazine decide the winners?

Using statistics from data services company Onboard Informatics, they crunched the numbers to come up with the best small cities for families to live. Theses cities populations needed to be between 50,000 and 300,000. Mt. Pleasant's current population is estimated to be about 65,000 and is slated to grow to 85,000 by 2015.

The writters also factored in additional information on the economy of each small city such as the fiscal strength of the government, availability of jobs and housing and the quality of the schools available to the residents.


Finally, the writers visited all of the top contenders and interviewed residents, assessed traffic, parks and gathering places and considered various intangibles such as community spirit.

It is clear from all of the accolades that Mt. Pleasant has been receiving lately from being named by the National Civic League on June 18th as a top 10 All America City at its 61st annual celebration to the latest honor from Money Magazine that Mt. Pleasant, SC was, is and will continue to be a terrific place to call home!!!!
