We love summer time in Mt. Pleasant! To celebrate, every summer we host an #ILoveMtP Instagram photo contest. The contest encourages participants to show off summer fun photos taken in the Mt. Pleasant area. This year we had a variety of posts shared with us! Here are the top 10 posts from the contest:

10. Downtown Mt. Pleasant parks are the perfect place for a stroll with your best friend.

9. With more than 1,000 acres of parkland, the area parks are the perfect place to get lost or be found.

8. Relax and rejuvenate at Downtown Mt. Pleasant’s Pure Vitality Juice Bar & Spa.
