Community Information

The Town of Midland has much
to offer through the Fall and Winter seasons.  Take in
the breathtaking fall colours while walking along the
waterfront trail, or perhaps board the Miss Midland Tour
Boat for a fall cruise of the 30,000 Islands. 
Throughout the winter months, Midland offers downhill and
cross country skiing options, as well as extensively groomed
snowmobile trails.   After a day on the slopes or
snowmobile trails, take advantage of the fine dining options
in our downtown area.   

For those wishing to
experience the culture, history, and nature at its best, we
offer the Huronia Museum, Sainte Marie Among the Hurons, the
Martyr¬ís Shrine and the Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre.  
Midland’s hospitality is reflected in its many historic
sites, museums, recreational areas and its friendly people. 

We hope that our Website will allow you to gain a sense of
our community and entice you to visit us year round. 
If you already live in Midland, we hope that you share our
pride in this progressive community.
