Area Attractions

Today, the cities of Lewiston, Clarkston and Asotin are referred to as the gateway to Hells Canyon, North America’s deepest river gorge. Recreational opportunities for jet boating, white-water rafting, swimming, fishing, hunting, hiking and camping are limitless. Miles of levee pathways follow the rivers for walking, jogging and biking. The area is often referred to as the “Banana Belt” of the Pacific Northwest due to the mild winter climate that allows for year-round golfing, while being only a short drive away from snow skiing and snowmobiling. The Lewis-Clark Valley is a recreational paradise teeming with history and natural beauty.

Our area is considered part of the new frontier of wine-growing areas in the United States. But, we actualy have a long wine history. Grapes were introduced into the Clearwater Valley by 1872 and thanks to the pioneering efforts of two Frenchmen, Louis Desol and Robert Schleicher, and one German immigrant, Jacob Schaefer, the region rapidly become known for its wines. Schleicher was most successful, taking a number of gold medals for his wines at expositions in Omaha, Buffalo, St. Louis and Portland.  Now, local wineries are winning their own medals for varietals made from local and regional grapes. Taste for yourself and take some home to share with friends and family.
