Half of the urban "Cities of the Androscoggin," Lewiston lies on the eastern banks of the Androscoggin River. An early manufacturing center, Lewiston still lives and breathes with the sights and sounds of modern productivity. Brimming with modern conveniences, Lewiston, and her sister town of Auburn, sit between the clean and natural settings of Maine's western lakes and mountains, and intermittent shore-front beaches and rocky coastlines. Lewiston and Auburn serve as a source of resources and entertainment not only for those coming into the state, but also for the local inhabitants, many of whom travel 40 minutes to an hour and a half from the rural settings, for a taste of 21st century resources.

  • These twin cities, situated along the Androscoggin River, make up the second largest metropolitan area in Maine.  
  • An early favorite for Canadian and European immigrants, the Lewiston-Auburn area has a diverse culture. French is commonly spoken here. 
  • Lewiston-Auburn is a growing arts community with several theatre companies, festivals and events.
  • The State of Maine Parade is held in Lewiston each year in May and draws thousands of spectators.
