Travel site applauds Mount Vernon
August 23, 2013
Fodor's, a travel news website, has named Mount Vernon as one of Five Midwestern Small Towns to Visit Now. The story was published this week at fodors.com.
Milwaukee freelance writer Kristine Hansen writes that "though tiny, downtown Mount Vernon has an espresso cafe ... flirty antiques shops ... and a Fair Trade boutique."
The other four towns highlighted include Stillwater, Minn., Traverse City, Mich., Mineral Point, Wis., and Woodstock, Ill.
