It used to be that everyone headed to Florida for Southern hospitality and warm weather with great shows. All of that has changed recently as more and more people are making their way to Branson, Missouri and the surrounding towns. You don't have to be right in Branson to have a fabulous time. Mount Vernon, MO has its own share of awesome attractions to consider, not the least being the Mount Vernon Courthouse Square. This famous square is located conveniently right in the center of town and is well known for its collection of wonderful shops. Some of the names will be familiar as they are regional and national chain stores, but you will find just as many independently owned shops offering regional and handmade goods you just won't be able to find anywhere else. Of course, you can also stop by the diner and enjoy a great cup of coffee and award winning pie while you check out the sights.
Of course, you can't get by visiting the Mount Vernon Courthouse Square without noticing the courthouse itself. This stately building is often the setting of civil ceremonies and community events. No doubt you will find plenty of information about upcoming events right on the square, but the staff at your hotel should be able to clear up any questions you may have. The Mount Vernon Courthouse Square hosts all kinds of festivals from the Strawberry Festival in the summer to the Apple Butter Fest in the fall. Stop by to see a more relaxed lifestyle.
