Lewiston Vacations & Travel Packages!
Few events in the history of human civilization are as profound as gold rushes. New settlements are formed and more than gold, only the crests and troughs of human nature seem evident as long as long as the heat is full on. One such consequence to the mad rush for the coveted yellow metal in America culminated in the founding of a city called Lewiston in Idaho (the US) in 1861 AD. Fast forward to 2016, and you’ll find Lewiston as a prominent centre for ammunition manufacturing and a prominent tourist destination. As an unassuming visitor, you wouldn’t find anything amiss as far as tourist attractions are concerned. The city has beautifully used its one hundred fifty years old history and contrasting natural landscape of rivers and canyons to put forward a range of architectural and cultural attractions that would wow you in next to no time.
