There’s an Ontario town that is dedicated to arts and culture, so much so that it’s home to the largest outdoor art galleries in the province. With over 30 different murals, Midland boasts its colourful wall art and encourages everyone to check it out. Here’s what to know about this vibrant town.

The Town of Midland is known for having breathtaking waterfront views, beaches, culturally significant areas, and landmarks. It’s the gateway to the famous 30,000 islands and it’s just over an hour and a half drive away from Toronto.

Though the massive cruise ships that dock at its harbour may catch your eye, what really stands out is its dedication to art.
