Living by the lake is a great experience, however, it means that it does get a little crowded. It's a small quaint town that is full of history and is best known for the festivals that happen every fall and summer. Not to mention, every third Thursday there is music downtown that makes Vermilion seem very lively.

A small town on a Great Lake, that's how Vermilion is described. Vermilion is a wounderfull place to live, with great restaurants, plenty of beaches and ice cream shops and a small quant felling it makes for the perfect hometown.
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.
