Living in the LC Valley

Centrally Located – Lewiston, which has its own airport, is just two hours from Spokane and five hours from Boise and Seattle.

Sunshine Year-Round – The Lewiston-Clarkston Valley’s unique climate features an annual high temperature of 64 degrees, over 5 degrees warmer, with much less snow fall, than neighboring Moscow and Pullman, and warmer than southern Idaho cities like Twin Falls and Pocatello.

National Rankings – Lewiston is consistently ranked as one of the top 10 safest cities in the nation (Farmers Insurance). It also was ranked as the best town for hunting and fishing by Outdoor Life Magazine, and as one of the top waterfront cities by National Geographic.

Explore – the great outdoors with white water rafting, jet boats, two rivers, hundreds of beaches, renowned state parks, campus recreation programs, and weather that keeps the golf courses busy throughout the year. And just outside of the Valley, multiple ski resorts await the winter sports enthusiast.

Things to Do – Enjoy an active downtown scene, hundreds of restaurants, multiple concert venues and theatres, and great shopping opportunities in a city known for its warmth, friendliness, and small-town feel.


There's a lot of things to do around Lewiston, there's the river, there's hiking. You can go up to Moscow and go up to Moscow Mountain. There's a lot of trails around here. And then there's snowboarding places around here as well.

The thing that I like best about living in Lewiston is how small the town is and how you can get everywhere really quickly. It is very easily accessible to other places.

The Spokane airport is only two hours away. Boise's only five hours and Seattle's only a few hours away.

The thing that I like best about the seasons here is that right down here in Lewiston, I don't have to worry about a lot of snow. September and early spring, they're still out on the water. There is white-water rafting, there is tubing, boating, and a lot of fun, outdoor water activities.

The Warrior way means to be hardworking, indulgent student, as well as having fun and enjoying your time at LCSC, and also being able to become an asset to the community after you're finished with school.
