The Shem Creek Experience

Mount Pleasant has it’s share of special waterfront property and Shem Creek is undoubtedly the town’s best-known destination.  It’s a great place to catch a beer, some tasty shrimp, and to take in the action down on the water.   While   it has always been a major hub for Charleston’s shrimping fleet, Shem Creek has recently become a destination for kayakers and paddleboarders.

Some of Mount Pleasant’s best kept secrets are the neighborhoods surrounding Shem Creek, such as Cooper EstatesCreekside, and Shemwood.   The oldest neighborhood slightly bordering Shem Creek to the east  is appropriately called Old Village, and is often confused with Old Mount Pleasant.   There is also Bayview Acres, which is a nice little oasis tucked in between Shem Creek and Patriot’s Point.  See the map below to see each neighborhood.

Old Village

Shem Creek Homes For Sale in Mount Pleasant, SCThe history of Mount Pleasant begins in Old Village, and a walk through the sleepy fishing village will easily remind you of the area’s colonial and antebellum past.  The streets are lined with sidewalks and it is common to see neighbors walking down a block or two to the Pitt Street Pier or over to Alhambra Hall to enjoy a nice breeze coming off the harbor and smell the salt marsh.

Old Village has the sense and feel that newer neighborhoods can only dream of. It is a special area that is a quiet and friendly oasis from the hustle of modern Mount Pleasant.
