Mount Vernon is a neighborhood that is quiet and peaceful with many trees and several waterways.  One of the reasons Mount Vernon is so quiet is because there is very little commercial real estate in Mount Vernon.  That doesn’t mean that Mount Vernon is far from everything. In fact, Rt. 1 (Richmond Hwy) is full of warehouse stores and restaurants like Target and Walmart and Bed Bath and Beyond and Chili’s and so on. Here are the grocery stores closest to the Mount Vernon Mansion.
