This enchanting little town has always been a sea side community with New England style atmosphere.
This is the kind of town that still has a working soda fountain, a town square and summer concerts on the green.
People here actually sit on their front porches on a summer evening.
Visiting boats are not only welcomed, they are an important part of the ambiance of what locals call "Harbour Town."Vermilion is situated along the Southern shore of Lake Erie and embraces the Vermilion River.
On summer nights, residents and visitors congregate on the large deck at Main Street Beach to watch boats sail back and forth in front of the beautiful Lake Erie sunset and enjoy the Mystic Belle, a small paddle wheeler, offering rides on the Vermilion River.Be reminded of a simpler time when an afternoon at the beach, a hand-dipped ice cream cone and a stroll along Main Street made your day special.Stay for a day, maybe two, and take home a memory that will last forever.Outdoor movies and concerts are offered all summer long, as well as Second Saturday Citywide Sales.Christmas in July celebrates winter in summer with Santa arriving by riverboat.Vermilion is home to two golf courses, a history museum, cooking school, lighhouse and a vineyard.
