Nestled in the southwestern corner of Indiana, you’ll find Mount Vernon, a small yet picturesque town that's surely worth checking out. The county seat of Posey County, the town is located on the border between Indiana and Kentucky, right on the Ohio River. Home to scenic views and friendly faces, whether you’re in Mount Vernon for a short time or you’re there to stay, it’s easy to see why dog lovers would love to call this location home.
While not a tiny town by any means, Mount Vernon manages to be just small enough to be cozy, and just large enough to offer room to grow. While you’re there, you’ll definitely want to make the short trip to Evansville, less than twenty miles away. A haven for hungry hounds and their humans, the dog-friendly food options available in Evansville can’t be missed in good conscience. Stop in Ri Ra Irish Pub and enjoy the riverfront patio, where your dog will be provided a fresh bowl of water, and you’ll be free to choose from any of the classic pub fare available on the extensive menu. Simply call ahead of time to ensure there is space for you and your pup so everyone can have fun!
If you’re willing to wait a little while, carry your pup towards Iroquois Gardens. Here, you’ll find an Italian restaurant that appeals to the most refined of palates. Pangea Kitchen serves everything from gelato to homemade mozzarella to their Neapolitan pizza. All of their delicious appetizers and entrees are guaranteed to stun, and perhaps most stunning of all is the fact that your dog is welcome to join you on the outdoor patio on any given sunny day. Settle in with a cold drink and some icy water for your pup, and prepare for one of the best meals of your life!
