• Situated on the broad Kettle River Valley, the small and peaceful village of Midway is one of the great places to visit in Boundary Country, with many historical sites, numerous recreational centres, good camping facilities, and countless fascinating attractions.

    Midway was originally known as Boundary City when the townsite was laid out in 1893. Midway is near the midpoint on the old Dewdney Trail, from its beginning at Hope to its terminus at Wild Horse Creek near Fort Steele, and Midway is approximately halfway between the Rocky Mountains and the Pacific Ocean.

    Midway experiences a humid continental climate with mild, moderately cold winters and hot summers. Precipitation is higher than in many other British Columbia Southern Interior locations, but still fairly low.
