The "Best Small City in America"

Here's a claim to fame: Mount Vernon was once voted the "Best Small City in America" by the New Rating Guide to Life in America's Small Cities, and it hasn't lost its touch. Lying in the heart of the Skagit County, the city offers a diverse list of outdoor activities from hiking to bird watching. If you stay in a Mount Vernon vacation rental during spring, you'll be treated to the sight of millions of colorful tulips which are grown in the nearby fertile valley. The flower is so important to the region, they even have a festival to celebrate them.

Things to do

Come for the blooming tulips

There's much to do in the city, whenever you stay in a Mount Vernon vacation rental. If you visit in April, you can celebrate the Tulip Festival with the town's residents and head out to view the spectacular sight of millions of blooming tulips. If you're visiting with kids, they will love the hands-on art and science exhibits at the Skagit Valley Children's Museum. Alternatively, take them to the beautiful 1920s Lincoln Theatre to catch the latest flick or watch one of the many plays and musicals. Interestingly, it's one of only a handful of theaters in the country which have an original Wurlitzer organ.

Activities

The Skagit Valley, right on your doorstep

There's no shortage of outdoorsy activities to keep you occupied when you stay in a Mount Vernon vacation rental. The Skagit Valley lies right on your doorstep and lends itself to hiking and equestrian activities. Nearby, you can swing your clubs at the championship-style golf course or spend a night under the stars and canvas in the Rasar State Park. The area has long been known for birders as a place to tick off their list. A walk through a section of the Great Washington Birding Trail offers the opportunity to spot snow geese, bald eagles and tundra swans.

Weather

Each season brings something unique

It's always worth staying in a Mount Vernon vacation rental, no matter the season. While spring can bring in light drizzle, those who come are treated to bracing countryside walks and fewer crowds to contend with. Summers are typically hot, but the breeze keeps it pleasant and many of the city's events and festivities are held around this time. When the other tourists disperse in fall, you may very well have the hiking trails all to yourself and the winter snows turn the whole landscape into a white playground for adventurous activities like cross-country skiing.

Natural features

The gorgeous Cascade Loop awaits

If you're going to visit just one place in Mount Vernon, make it the fabulous Cascade Loop. This hiking trail takes you past the shoreline of the inland waters and through densely packed conifer forests before crossing the high passes of the Cascade Range. The habitats teem with avifauna including millions of shorebirds and neotropical migrants. It's also one of the best places in America for spotting raptors which circle on the morning thermals keeping their beady eyes open for prey below. Just wrap up warm and remember to bring your binoculars.
