Lorain (pop: 68,652) is Lorain County's largest city. Called the "International City," Lorain is a melting pot (or salad, or whatever) of 70 ethnic groups including a large Puerto Rican population (mostly coming for the steel plants). The downtown is always under rehab while projects along the Black River entice people to move back (and they are attractive residential projects). The Lorain Palace is a downtown staple and the locally famous Lorain Lighthouse is a sight to see. Lorain is definitely worth the trip to see.
