Mount Vernon is a suburban community of New York, with beautiful tree-lined streets, parks, and a sense of history.
The main attraction in residential Mount Vernon is the historic site of St. Paul’s Church (built in 1763) which was used during the Revolution as a British military hospital. It's a true gem, hidden away from the rest of the city and offers a glimpse into the background of the Revolutionary War. It's also a nice reminder that Mount Vernon grew from a small settlement including this church.
Downtown Mount Vernon has shops and restaurants, plus the city has parkland including Willson's Woods which has a wave pool, water slides, a spray deck, water playground, and an English Tudor-style bathhouse.
One of the biggest appeals of Mount Vernon is that it's an easy train ride into Manhattan in NYC, where visitors can explore all the vibrant attractions of the Big Apple.
Visit this area in late spring, summer, and fall for the warmest temperatures and pleasant days.
