Follow The Lewis And Clark Trail For A Memorable Family Adventure

Following the same paths that Lewis and Clark took on their now famous expedition can provide an opportunity for your family to have an adventure of their own. You'll be able to see the natural wonders of the Pacific Northwest part of the country, while learning about the journey taken by these famous explorers. It's a chance to have fun and provide your children with a closer look at some of the facts they're learning in school.

The journey is marked by museums and visitor centers that use state of the art technology to bring the adventures to life. Tourists can also attend Native American events to learn more about the cultures that the explorers encountered throughout their travels across Montana, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. Along the way, marvel at the mountains, rivers, lakes, and ocean beach fronts that distinguish these areas.

Some of the Lewis and Clark expedition route and stops in Montana include spending time in West Yellowstone. You can spend time at the Yellowstone IMAX theater, while visiting the area or you can take your family to visit the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center and the Yellowstone Historic Center Museum. Additionally, the Big Hole National Battlefield, Big Sky Resort Area, and Bear Paw Battlefield are all along the way.

Idaho is equally packed with fun and interesting stops, which include a stop at the Nez Perce Indian Reservation. Additionally, spend time at Idaho Falls and Lemhi Pass. Sun Valley, Lolo Pass, and Boise are all along the way as well.

In Washington, one of the most fascinating adventures you'll share with your family will be a visit to Cape Disappointment State Park. This is where Lewis and Clark guided separate tours to view the Pacific Ocean, because it extends out over the ocean an impressive 200 feet. Elsewhere in Washington, view the Columbia River Gorge and visit Long Beach Peninsula, among dozens of other stops.

The stops in Oregon also emphasize the history and beauty of the area. Wonder at the beauty of the state, as you visit Astoria and Fort Stevens State Park, or take in the many events that Portland has to offer. Stops at Hood River, Cannon Beach, and the Hells Canyon Scenic Byway are a few of the other stops that make the trip through Oregon worthwhile.
