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.

Lewiston is a great place to go if you're hungry! Many restaurants to experience, and many varieties. My personal favorite is the Silo, Great view, great food, and great service! One of the best things about Lewiston is there is no chain resturaunts, everything is original and home to Lewiston.

Lewiston is a wonderful little town with quaint shops, beautiful homes and super friendly people. Hibbards frozen custard stand has the best frozen custard anywhere, Apple Granny's has a fantastic fish and chips and The Brick Yard has something for every BBQ lover.

Lewiston is the most wonderfully adorable town. I just love driving up to visit once almost every week during the summer. The different restaurants Lewiston has are all great. My personal favorite is the Silo, both for the food and the picturesque view it offers, but every restaurant I've ever tried in Lewiston had delicious food. They definitely deserve the Best for Food award.
