Midway is such a very beautiful little town! Located in Heber valley, the city has a total area of 3.3 square miles! It is home of the 10,000-year old geo-thermal crater, which attracts many swimmers and scuba divers because of the warm & clear mineral water. Midway was also home of the 2002 Winter Olympics cross-country and biathlon events.
Midway stood in for the fictional town of Everwood, Colorado, in the closing scenes of the episode, "Foreverwood", the series finale of the TV show, Everwood. Background shots overlooking the town were filmed from Memorial Hill, with the Wasatch Mountain Range in the background.
