Vermilion Reviews

All Categories
Vermilion is a small little boat town on Lake Erie. It has a beautiful downtown , with quite a few small shops that are ran by local business owners. Vermilion is home to Chez Francois , one of the highest rated restaurants in the state. There is also The Wine Vault , another excellent restaurant to visit while in town, along with many other eateries and a couple wineries to boot. Downtown Vermilion also features a iconic view of the The towns lighthouse right on Main Street beach. A con about the town are that there is a limited selection of grocery stores. With the city being more of a summer attraction there is limited entertainment during the winter season, unless you happen to be hunter of course.

Vermilion is a wonderfully quite and quiet family town. This town is a wonderful find and a tiny bit of nautical Paradise. The small Beach and small town culture give it every charm it deserves. Small family-owned businesses give it an attractive flare. I love this town because it is not bar centered oh, I can trust that my children can walk Uptown and know that they will be surrounded with wholesomeness and safety. I love the town of Vermilion
I've lived in Vermilion since I was three years old. Because of the small town and its small population, there's always been a homey feeling here. Whether it's at the library, the grocery store, or just walking around downtown, you're guaranteed to see someone you've met before. I love the closeness of the residents and how no matter what part of town you live in you're always five minutes away from everything at any given point.
