We will have a one night stayover in probably Mount Vernon in late July. Will we need to make a reservation in advance?

Thanks!

It's unlikely that you will need a reservation in advance, as there are a bunch of hotels there. However, you can usually get better rates if you shop on line beforehand than you will get if you just walk in the door.

There are a fair assortment of the usual chain restuarants. None of them are outstanding, none of them are bad.

Among non-chains, I like El Rancherito, a non-descript Mexican restaurant located on your right just east of the main interstate exit (IL 15). There is also a very nice sports bar and grill located in one of the hotels just off the interstate (on Potomac), but I am sorry, I can't remember its name at present because it is the place I would recommend.

I was just in Mount Vernon yesterday, so I checked out the name of that sports bar -- Kreiger's. It's attached to the Holiday Inn.

For a treat, drive about 2 miles from the interstate toward downtown and Papa Z's (1812 Broadway St.). Wonderful assortment of ice cream flavors and pretty good fudge too.

Kreiger's is the sports bar you are talking about, at least I think. It is located in the Holiday Inn.
