Elmore is located in northwestern Ohio in southern Ottawa County about 15 miles southeast of Toledo along I-80/I-90 on the banks of the Portage River just over 10 miles south of Lake Erie. The town is within easy driving distance of Crane Creek State Park, about 10 miles north of town; Catawba Island State Park, 25 miles to the northeast and East Harbor State Park, 25 east-northeast.

Local legend has it that a bridge here is haunted by a "Headless Motorcycle Man". Apparently, on a March 21st after WWII, a soldier came back to the states and something happened with his girlfriend. He was riding across the bridge on his motorcylce when a wire that was strung across the bridge cut off his head.

The story goes that if, on March 21st, you park on the bridge, place your car keys on the dash, flash your headlights three times, and honk your horn three times, a bright light is supposed to chase you off the bridge.

For those that enloy a casual stroll through acres of flora will want to take in the Schedel Foundation Arboretum and Gardens.
