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.

Friendly, scenic, great cultural events and festivals, historic. Lewiston has it all!

Lewiston, New York is one of the best and beautiful small towns in America. In addition to great family events and activities, the food offerings are outstanding. One of my favorite dining locations is Trusello's Pizzeria. It is family owned and operated, fresh homemade items each day. The family serves their famous Trusello "old fashioned" original pizza, it's fantastic! (the secret recipe handed down from generation to generation) A full menu can be found at www.trusellopizza.com, including pizza, subs, salads, wings, fingers, fish fry, dinners and more. Eat in, (tables in and outdoors, HD TV's and a bar) take out or delivery. The restaurant is located at 742 Center Street, Lewiston, NY 14092. (716) 405-7031. Trusello's can also be found on facebook - www.facebook.com/Trusellopizza.
