About MidlandOriginally settled by the Huron people in the 14th century, the region became heavily populated by the early 1600s. French fur traders and Jesuit missionaries and their Huron converts were attracted to the growing area and became immortalized in the Jesuit Relations and Allied Documents written in the 17th century. A depiction of a Jesuit mission is among the more than 33 hand-painted murals with historic themes adorning exterior walls of downtown buildings, creating the effect of an outdoor art gallery.

Midland now is a vacation center on southern Georgian Bay. Recreational activities in the summer include boating, swimming, windsurfing, fishing, golfing and scuba diving, while winter offers ice fishing, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.

Beausoleil Island, the principal unit of the Georgian Bay Islands National Park, is 8 kilometres (5 mi.) from Midland. Four kilometres (2.5 mi.) from Midland by water and 47 kilometres (30 mi.) by highway is the popular Honey Harbour resort. Hotels supply boats and guides.
