Mount Pleasant Things to Do
Be sure and visit the historic Main Street, which has over 20 small shops and places to eat. Most are clothing and craft stores, and the only bar in town, the Triangle Lounge is at the western end of the historic district. The town's liquor store is also on Main Street.
Most buildings on the street were built in the 1870s and a few still have very old artwork and advertisements painted on the brickwork. The street is well lit at night, although most shops close by 6-7 PM.
Mount Pleasant Restaurants
The Horseshoe Mountain Restaurant on the southern end of town is by far the classiest place in Sanpete County (where Mt. Pleasant is). This is a true sit down place, not a cafe or malt shop, and the food is excellent.
The food is moderately priced, ranging from $8-$10 for chicken and pasta dishes to $15 and up for the finer steaks and seafood (including fresh lobster). A full meal for two runs about $30 with appetizer and drinks. It's wonderful to enjoy a nice dinner while it's snowing outside and the huge fireplace is crackling. Reservations are almost never necessary except during the Mormon Miracle Pageant, held in mid-June, which brings in thousands of visitors to the valley.
Favorite Dish: I usually go for the homemade Chicken Cordon Bleu or the 14 oz. New York steak. Both are really good stuff with lots of french fries or a baked potato. While you wait for your order, the waiter brings hot rolls and butter and a tossed salad with sage croutons and mild cream dressing. Wine and beer is available, but you have to ask to see the list.
Mount Pleasant Nightlife
It's simple. There is no night life here. The bar is mainly for the locals, who use it to excess on occasion. Most of the high school crowd spend their evenings cruising State Street, a whole 1.5 miles.
