Feel like a real New Yorker in Mount Vernon

Mount Vernon sits on the northern edge of the Bronx, surrounded by the suburban sprawl of greater New York City. Just a short bus ride from any Mount Vernon vacation rental will bring you to world-famous attractions like Bronx Zoo and the Hudson River, while a slightly longer excursion could mean wondering at the skyscrapers of Manhattan or enjoying boat tours across to Ellis Island. After, you can return to bed down in a quiet, quirky, more off-beat neighborhood, helping you to feel like a real New Yorker enjoying the delights of the buzzing Big Apple.

Big Apple tours and evening enjoyments in Mount Vernon

Mount Vernon vacation rentals offer a great base on the northern side of New York City. You can break out of the suburb and catch hop on, hop off bus tours that weave down through Manhattan and Queens. You can go skyscraper viewing, to wonder at the panoramas of the Big Apple from soaring lookouts. You can enjoy the throbbing entertainment haunts of the Bronx, where Caribbean coco clubs mingle with Latin jazz bars and the delectable delights of Little Italy.

Mount Vernon is a ticket to northern NYC

It's less than 30 minutes from most Mount Vernon vacation rentals to the huge Bronx Zoo – the largest of its kind in the entire United States, in fact. A trip there is a must, with everything from rare gelada baboons to hulking polar bears, the elusive snow leopard to snapping Nile crocs awaiting in the various enclosures. The Yankee Stadium also isn't far. You can go there to have guided tours through the terraces and unravel the history of one of America's most legendary sporting teams.

Mount Vernon is for all seasons

Because it's the seemingly endless attractions of New York City that are on the menu for travelers booking Mount Vernon vacation rentals, you can rest assured there's going to be something to do no matter the season. Winter, between December and March, brings the coldest weather, but also sees festive cheer hit the shopping strips of Manhattan and the green spaces of Central Park. Spring and summer, from May to September, are great for wandering the parks on the Hudson and seeing Bronx Zoo, while the fall often has dry, crisp days that are perfect for sightseeing.

Mount Vernon is an urban cut out of the Big Apple

Mount Vernon allows travelers to surround themselves with the sprawl of the Big Apple. But even as the Bronx spreads out to the south and the buzzing heart of Manhattan caps it off, there are some natural draws here to boot. Firstly, there are the wild enclosures of the Bronx Zoo – worth it for glimpses of exotic creatures like lions, polar bears, and primates. Then there are the wetland shores and wide sand beaches of Pelham Bay Park, or the wooded hills of the greater Hudson Valley to the north.
