Lewiston is the Maine event when it comes to outdoor fun

Perched on the banks of the Androscoggin River, the charming city of Lewiston is twinned with the neighboring town of Auburn. It's famous for the Great Falls Balloon Festival held here each summer. Get your Maine getaway off to a great start by booking a well-placed Lewiston vacation rental. Visit the Great Falls waterfall, mooch around the Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, or take a romantic stroll along the Androscoggin River Walk, a scenic mile-long pathway. Nature lovers will enjoy spotting rare birds and wildlife in the Thorncrag Nature Sanctuary.

Hipsters head to Lewiston's Lisbon Street

Head to Downtown Lewiston and Lisbon Street, which has seen swaths of gentrification in recent years. Potter around its quirky vintage shops and organic delis, and stop off for a cold-brew coffee or a craft beer at one of the hip cafes or bars. Lewiston also attracts an outdoorsy crowd. Book a Lewiston vacation rental close to the waterfront and try kayaking or paddleboarding along the river. After dark, head to Downtown and sample the wares of the city's hippest diners, wine bars, and microbreweries.

Balloons, arts, and Gothic architecture, Lewiston's Maine attractions

Aside from the Great Falls Balloon Festival, a big draw to Lewiston is the imposing Gothic-style Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul. Founded in 1870, it's the oldest church for Maine's French-speaking residents. Designed in the manner of the Notre-Dame in Paris, it's one of the few churches in Maine that holds Mass in French. If you're more into art than Gothic architecture, visit the Bates Museum of Art, which hosts a varied calendar of permanent and temporary collections, largely contemporary art, within its 3 main galleries.

"Leaf" time to see Lewiston's fabulous fall foliage

Perched on the East coast, Maine generally has a humid continental climate, with warm, sunny summers and cold, snowy winters. The busiest season is summer, between July and August, which attracts the wealth of visitors to the area. However, the fall foliage in September and October is also a big draw for visitors, and Lewiston vacation rentals can get booked up quickly. If you come in late November, the mercury starts to drop towards freezing and the rains set in, which can turn to snow, so pack plenty of layers.

Take me to the river - hiking and biking in Lewiston's state park

Located 36 miles due north of Portland, Lewiston and its neighboring twin city of Auburn are split by the Androscoggin River. A 10-mile drive north is the Androscoggin Riverlands State Park. It has more than 2,700 acres of woodland and for 12 miles, the river flows right through the park. It attracts a mix of kayakers, hikers, and mountain bikers who come to conquer its many rugged trails. The river wetlands are a popular haunt for birdwatchers, who camp out to spot the many great blue herons, ospreys, and bald eagles that frequent the park.
