Midway is a small mountain valley where it feels like you can get away from it all. It has everything you need, but it doesn’t feel like it. You can be at three different lakes in minutes that are home to some of the best fly fishing in the world. There are great cross-country, back-country, and down-hill skiing here, as well as hiking, mountain biking … the list goes on and on. Midway, Utah, is an outdoor lover’s paradise.
