Vermilion Ohio has been designated one of 10 most “Affordable Lake Towns To Buy A Waterfront Property”, according to Forbes.

Forbes reports that Realtor.com has created a list of the most affordable lake towns to find a home on a lake, or close enough for a view.

“At a time when many Americans are trying to manage life under lockdown, a home where you can enjoy the outdoors is looking more and more appealing—not just as a weekend-only getaway, but potentially for year-round living, if you have the ability to work remotely,” said realtor.com housing expert Cicely Wedgeworth.

Water-based attractions and activities was one of the main ranking factors.

“Although offerings vary by location, you’re likely to find options for boating, fishing and paddle boarding,” stated Wedgeworth. “The lakes themselves aren’t the only appeal. When on dry land, you might hit a casino (Gouldsboro, Pennsylvania) or theme park (Branson, Missouri), tubing or go-karting (Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin), or enjoy strolling through the shops and restaurants of a historic district (Vermilion, Ohio).”

Vermilion ranked 6 on the list:

Median lake home price: $557,800
