Vermillion County living: enduring values and rich resources
Vermillion County, Indiana is a place where the living is easy, thanks to delightfully affordable housing and remarkably low taxes. More important, though, it’s a place where traditional Midwestern values are woven through daily life. It’s the kind of community where kids congregate in 4-H clubs, the FFA chapter, and the basketball court.
Local residents take full advantage of the fresh air and other natural resources, whether in their own backyards or some of Indiana’s well-loved state parks. We’re minutes from Turkey Run, Shades, and Shakamak State Parks. The Wabash River forms our county’s eastern border, and popular recreational waters like Sugar Creek and Raccoon Lake are our neighbors. Whether you spend your spare time fishing, hunting, canoeing, camping, biking, or just enjoying nature’s bounty, you’ll be at home here.
Our communities enjoy big gatherings, and our annual events draw visitors from throughout the Midwest. Clinton’s Little Italy Festival celebrates the food and culture of the ancestral home of many of our residents, and vintage auto enthusiasts put their lovingly restored vehicles to the test at the Newport Antique Auto Hill Climb. Parke County’s storied Covered Bridge Festival is just minutes away.
Are you in search of even more excitement? We’re within driving distance of all the dining, shopping, professional sports, and other entertainment you’ll find in Indianapolis, Chicago, St. Louis, Cincinnati, and Louisville, so you can indulge yourself and come back home to relax. Nearby Lafayette and Terre Haute also have plenty to offer.
You’ll have peace of mind here, too. Crime rates are very low, and our healthcare facilities are first-rate, with access to top specialists close to home.
