Lorain County, New Home Communities

Driving through Ohio one cannot help but enter the breathtaking Lorain County. Named after a region in France and first to style the term hamburger, Lorain is full of contradictions. These contradictions however, will add more color and depth to your stay here.  

Placed at the forks of the Black River, Elyria, the county seat, is a place you will want to visit. Make a pit stop at Jim’s Coffee House on Lake Avenue, to recharge your batteries, and then proceed to have the best weekend ever. Every year, the city is home to The Elyria Superhero Weekend, a charity event focused on improving literacy through comic books and graphic novels. So dust up your best Flash suit and enjoy the city-wide event.

For the more adventurous types among us there is always the Black River Reservation. Bike or hike the 6 miles of trail and get the most amazing views of the Black River. Bring out your kayak and start the adventure. Or better yet, turn your bike onto Murray Ridge Road, enter the Rowland Nature Preserve, and get to know Elyria’s best kept secret. Here, stop for a while and visit the 9/11 Memorial Monument.

Another great city in the area is the county’s namesake, Lorain, is a cultural well.  With more than 70 different nationalities living here, no matter where you come from you will feel at home. If you happen to be here during the summer, you will surely want to be a part of the Lorain International Festival. Bask in the beauty of the International Princesses and adopt a duck for charity. Quack, quack, the ducks are coming!

The Bazaar at the International Fair is another thing not to be missed. Sample dishes from all over the world and listen to the best local bands and artists. Appropriate for all ages, and quite secure thanks to the local law enforcement, this event will surely have you coming back.

History aficionados will not be bored either. If you are one of them, leave your friends at the falafel stand at the festival and go visit one of the available museums. Go to the Liberal Arts College in Oberlin and enjoy the Allen Memorial Art Museum. With Pre-Columbian ceramics and exhibitions titled “Order and Chaos” and “Return of the Dragon”, you will find it quite impressive for a college museum. Be sure to check the modern art in the permanent collection. Whether it be Modigliani’s “Nude with Coral Necklace”, Matisse’s “Young Girt Seated”, or the bronze “Head of a Woman” by Picasso you will be sure to find a favorite.

In the end, there are not enough words to describe all the things available in Lorain County. It is well worth a visit, or maybe even a summer house. New Home Source is always here to guide you.
