The Best Of Mount Vernon, According To Us

May 15, 2019

Mount VernonIn March we told you about some of our favorite places in Coshocton. Well now it’s time to put the spotlight on Mount Vernon, where our other store is located. If you’re a local or plan to be visiting the area here’s our little guide to experiencing Mount Vernon to its fullest potential …

Fresh Air

If you find yourself with some free time on a nice day make your way to Ariel-Foundation Park. This park is a reclaimed space, occupying what used to be a former glass making factory. From walking trails, to lakes, to old brick structures there is something for everyone to enjoy. Don’t miss the summer concert series at the Schnormeier Event Center.

Kick Back       

If you’re traveling to Mount Vernon from out of town, or are looking for a little staycation the Mount Vernon Inn is a wonderful place to kick your feet up. Along with the cozy accommodations your stay includes breakfast and an evening beverage to help you wind down. It’s like being at home, without all of the chores.

Good Eats

There are plenty of great restaurants in Mount Vernon, but we always find ourselves going back to Southside Diner. With a friendly staff, generously sized {and delicious} portions, and yesteryear memorabilia on the walls this place will make you feel like you’re eating in your grandma’s kitchen. Oh, and this is not the place to skip dessert! Delicious.

Coffee FIx

When we need a caffeine fix we make our way to North Main Café. Whether you like drip coffee, or something fancy like a frozen salted caramel mocha, they’ve got you covered. They also serve breakfast and lunch if you want to sit down and stay a while.  

Summer Fun

If you love to swim be sure to check out Hiawatha Water Park! They have various pools, a snack bar, and even a water slide. Plenty to occupy the entire family on those hot summer days. If you know you’ll be going often take advantage of their memberships, otherwise just pop in when the weather inspires you to.

What are you waiting for? Get out there and explore Mount Vernon. Now that the weather is getting better we hope to see you all popping around town soaking up the sun!
