What’s not to like about a place called Mount Pleasant?

“Mount Pleasant is a place that is ‘Everything Texas’—friendly folks, great food, access
to nearby lakes, the historic downtown,
the Whatley Center for the Performing Arts,
and the Heart’s Bluff Game Ranch.”

Votes poured in for the Northeast Texas town, with special mentions of the historic downtown square and its specialty shops, including Laura’s Cheesecake & Bakery. Among other “Pleasantries,” the town boasts year-round events, from rodeos to shows at the Whatley Center for the Performing Arts, a historical museum with Caddo and pioneer artifacts, chocolate factory tours, a bluebird trail, and the allure of area parks and lakes.
