Welcome to Red Lion Hotel Lewiston
Follow the Clearwater River from the Bitterroot Mountains to its
merger with the Snake River, the present-day site of the twin
cities of Lewiston, Idaho and Clarkston, Washington. From there
lies the Port of Lewiston, 465 miles from the Pacific Ocean. It is
the West's most inland seaport.
Many of the Lewiston Valley's museums and parks, including the
Nez Perce National Historic Park and the Lewis Discovery Center at
Hell's Gate State Park, document and celebrate the history of the
Nez Perce and the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
Once the capital of Idaho, Lewiston is best known today for its
"Banana Belt" climate with warm, sunny days, year-round golf and
limitless opportunities for water-skiing, jet boating, sailing,
whitewater rafting, hunting, fishing, swimming and hiking. The city
is perfectly situated to provide easy access to spectacular Hells
Canyon, fishing for steelhead in the Clearwater River and
whitewater rafting on the Salmon River. In town, miles of paved
levee pathways follow the rivers for walking, jogging and biking.
Lewiston celebrates its lovely climate and the coming of spring
each April with the month-long Dogwood Festival.
