Named for the famous explorer Captain Meriwether Lewis, the city of Lewiston was Idaho’s first territorial capital. Located in north-central Idaho at the confluence of the Snake and Clearwater rivers, the city has a population of over 31,000 people and has much to offer to its residents and visitors. The area east of Lewiston consists of national forests and private land and the climate is great for wildlife. This combination makes hunting and fishing two very popular activities for both locals and tourists. Hiking, camping, picnicking and berry picking are also popular and easily accessible activities in the area. Hells Gate State Park is located just three miles outside of Lewiston and has its own camping facilities, beach, marina and hiking and horseback riding trails.
For those wanting a real adventure, Lewiston is also home to many outfitters and jet boat operators. The Clearwater and Snake River Recreational Trail is a 25-mile greenbelt easily accessible and great for walkers, runners and cyclists who just want to enjoy the scenery. Aside from all the outdoor activities offered by the surrounding area, the city of Lewiston is rich in history and culture. Home to the Lewis-Clark State College and the Lewiston Civic Theater, the city offers professional opera, ballet, music and other theatrical performances. Lewiston is also the very proud host of the annual Dogwood Festival when the city bustles with arts and crafts fairs, garden tours, sporting events and concerts for an entire week.
