meet. Across the Snake River is Clarkston,
Washington and both cities are named after the
explorers Lewis & Clark, who went through this
area during one of the most significant
exploration events in U.S. history. Lewiston is
located only a few hundred feet above sea level
so the climate is mild. The Lewis-Clark Valley
enjoys more warm and sunny days than any other
place in the Pacific Northwest.
opportunities are in abundance. There is premier
waterskiing, jet boating, sailing, whitewater
rafting, hunting, fishing, swimming, hiking and
camping, all within an hour of the Valley. There
are miles of paved levee pathways following the
rivers in both cities for walking, jogging and
biking. Snow skiing and snowmobiling are only a
short drive away. Four 18-hole golf courses are
located within 10 minutes of each other.
Some of the most popular recreation events
include half-day or day jet boat excursions,
fishing for steelhead or salmon, the NAIA World
Series starting Memorial Day weekend, and the
Dogwood Festival in April.
