Mount Vernon is a great suburb and we're close to Columbus. The area has everything you could want in terms of shops, restaurants, doctors, parks and such. There is a lot to enjoy plus it feels somewhat rural and has a hometown feel. We've lived in the Columbus area for years and are happy to have found a place that allows us to stay close to our friends and family but finally enjoy a smaller home with less maintenance to worry about. We had a huge sale and sold alot of our things when we downsized so now it's just our favorite items and some new stuff too of course! We spend time at the clubhouse a couple times a week using the gym or playing cards. It's nice to have the clubhouse here and be able to get together with friends.
