Explore Vermilion: 8 Spots to Visit in Charming, Downtown Vermilion

Shares

This fall my friend Rachel and I visited the charming little town of Vermilion, Alberta, located just two hours east of Edmonton! We were on a travel assignment with ZenSeekers.

Our task: discover downtown Vermilion and share about the great shops you find along the way! 

I have to say, it was a pretty easy task! 

Vermilion has one of the nicest small town downtowns in Alberta.

It’s vibrant, super cute, and full of history and character!

I guest blogged about visiting Vermilion over on ZenSeekers, highlighting eight local shops and restaurants:

Below are a few photos I took from our visit to Vermilion. Be sure to check out the local shops and restaurants I mention in my ZenSeekers Travel Guide including:

The great part is this isn’t even all of the shops we visited and all of the shops in Downtown Vermilion! 

There are so many spots to explore. It’s well worth planning a trip to this gem east of Edmonton.

I ended up buying a jumpsuit from Fresh Apparel (which I proceeded to change into and wear for the remainder of our shopping trip / photoshoots lol), a cat necklace from Lighten Up Therapy, earrings from MACK, a cat ring and bag from Pet Boutique & Salon and a belt from Uniquely U Styles.

The fries and lemon herb dry ribs from Anthony’s Grill are excellent, as is the iced London Fog and snickerdoodle from The Red Brick Cafe. We got a taste of the amaretto from Copper Cork Distillery as well! That should be a really popular spot. Such a lovely day!

Watch the short Facebook video interview I did with Todd Ree of Vermilion’s Copper Cork Distillery too:

And there’s even more to Vermilion than the downtown shops and restaurants, though that was our focus for this trip. Can’t wait to get back to this charming little town and explore more!!
