Mount Vernon Square
Experience the Marvels of Mount Vernon Square
Mount Vernon Square may be a tiny part of Washington, D.C., but don’t despair! It still has plenty to offer guests and residents alike. Featuring great restaurants, nightlife, and more, it’s one of the top places to be when you’re in D.C.
Walter E. Washington Convention Center
Perhaps the area’s best-known and most flocked-to site, the Walter E. Washington Convention Center is truly the heart of the neighborhood. Feel free to check out a schedule to find events that are happening here. Or, if you just want to pay homage to a beautiful, historic venue, explore it like any good tourist should.
Before or after your time at the convention center, be sure to stop in for a delicious bite to eat at Espita Mezcaleria, a restaurant and bar that is one of the finest D.C. has to offer. Known for its unique cocktails, street-food-style menu items, and Southern Mexico specialities you won’t find anywhere else, it’s the place to go for food that’s truly out of this world.
If Mid-Atlantic food is more your style, be sure to head on over to The Dabney, a restaurant featuring foods made from locally-sourced ingredients. You can enjoy seafood dishes, vegetarian options, and more, all in a beautifully preserved row house setting.
The Library of Congress National Book Festival
Mount Vernon Square is also home to many much-anticipated events each year. One of the favorites, especially among book lovers, is the Library of Congress National Book Festival. This annual festival often brings famed authors into town, and there’s never an admission charge.
Art enthusiasts, foodies, book lovers, and more all come together in beautiful Mount Vernon Square. No matter which category you fall into, or if you just happen to be someone who wants to see the real D.C., Mount Vernon Square is a great place to be!
