Vermilion is a picturesque town located on the south shore of Lake Erie in north-central Ohio. The population is approximately 11,000. The village of Vermilion is truly quaint and has a New England feel to it. Main Street is filled with boutiques and shops, there is still a working soda fountain in town and a town square with concerts on the green. The Harbour Town Historic District is an important part of Vermilion. In fact, no other place in Ohio has as many beautifully restored sea captains' homes in the Victorian, Italianate, Arts and Crafts and Queen Anne styles. Other areas of town have summer cottages nestled along the shore. Vermilion is called the "Largest Small Boat Harbor on the Great Lakes" and the public dock is within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, art galleries, several parks, and bed and breakfast inns. Recreational activities include swimming, boating, fishing, jet skiing, canoeing and sailing. Vermilion is also home to two golf courses, a vineyard and the Mystic Belle, an old-fashioned paddle wheeler that takes visitors on rides along the Vermilion River. The Inland Seas Maritime Museum features nautical and maritime exhibits of the Great Lakes, including underwater archaeology, maritime history, and ship building. The town is also host to several special events throughout the year, including the Great Lakes Pirate Fest, the Festival of the Fish and the Woollybear Festival, which features the longest parade in Ohio.
