Lewiston’s proximity to Niagara Falls in the Niagara River region makes for a mix of outdoor recreation, history, shopping and food and wine. While a trip to the falls is a must, the Niagara River provides the perfect setting for picnicking, hiking and white water rafting. Visitors often come to boat and fish as well, with biking, cross-country skiing, Frisbee golf and swimming also available.

At Niagara Falls take a boat tour on the famed Maid of the Mist or aim for an aerial view with a helicopter ride. Then head to the Niagara County Wine Trail where over a dozen wineries offer tours, tastings and year round events. Visit in July for the Annual Wine and Culinary Festival or September for Harvest Fest, amongst others.

Lewiston has a rich history for its role in the War of 1812 and the Underground Railroad. Tour Old Fort Niagara or The Lewiston Museum to go back in time, or visit one of three local theatres and Artpark in the summers for entertainment and creativity showcased. Our Lady of Fatima Shrine is another cultural attraction with scenic and spiritual significance.

Most importantly, Lewiston’s dining is enough of a draw on its own. Our team’s favorite stops included Orange Cat Coffee Company, Tommy George’s Village Coffee House, Mangia Café and Bakery, Village Bake Shoppe, Brickyard, Apple Granny, Hibbard’s Custard, Macri’s Italian Garden and six other fantastic finds. See where locals love to eat in Lewiston’s reviews.

Just walk down Center Street and turn into any of the restaurants for the best food, biggest portions, friendliest service and most reasonable prices. Living here is like being on vacation all the time! And we can walk home from the best dining anywhere!

Lewiston offers a great variety and many options of high quality restaurants all within a small and beautiful town. We can always find an outstanding meal here, whether looking for something upscale or something casual while eating out as a family. Usually, these meals come with a beautiful view, as well-- of the Niagara River or charming Center Street, not to mention friendly service.

Lewiston is definetly the best small town for food in the USA because it has plenty of great original restaurants and not any franchise restaurants. The Silo is hands down my favorite restaurant of all. Historically intersting, archetecurally awsome, great views and amazing food make it the best of all!!!
