The Shore Thing is located at the Main Street Beach in Downtown Vermilion. Look for the delightful yellow beach shack hosted by volunteers who will welcome you to Vermilion and provide help and suggestions for finding your way around town, from where to eat, drink and stay, attractions, directions and more. They are truly ambassadors to our "Small Town on a Great Lake."

This group of dedicated volunteers has beach chairs to rent, original beach glass jewelry for sale, and offer soda, chips and ice cream. Like our clean and tidy beach? You can thank the City of Vermilion and The Shore Thing volunteers who work together to make sure it's guest ready. There's also an ADA sand wheel chair for beach access and a Moby Mat for accessibility to the water's edge.
