Summertime Family Fun In The Lewis-Clark Valley

Summer. What starts as a long stretch of warm sunny days reaching far into the future winds to a close far too fast. If you’re looking for a quick getaway that  will give you and your kids some quality time before school starts back up, read on!

We’ve got a weekend plan full of fun and adventure that’s going to give your family a summer to remember.

Get your little ones out on the links at Gateway Golf Center. The 18 hole, miniature golf course is kid-friendly, sits right on the Snake River and promises an hour or two of real play on real grass.

Next, dip into a little good clean fun at the Asotin County Family Aquatic Center for a bit of splashing under the sun. Small swimmers will love the Lazy River and the shallow Adventure Pool, older kids will have a great time on the high-speed water slides and wave pool, and everyone will love the water feature toys!

Whew! It’s probably time for dinner and what’s better than pizza? How about watching your pizza being made?! Fazarri’s Finest Pizza has family style seating and a great viewing window where kids can watch their dough being tossed, sauced, sliced and served.

Instead of a bed time story, grab a blanket or low chairs and head to Pioneer Park to watch a family film under the stars at Movies On The Wall. Showing this August you can catch Back To The Future, The Natural and Honey, I Shrunk The Kids. Admission is free and open to everyone so you’re guaranteed a seat.

So, what do you think? Grab a suitcase, some clothes and sunscreen and let us help you make some summertime memories.

To plan your stay, check out our RV Parks, CampgroundsHotels or Bed & Breakfasts and don’t forget to watch our Specials & Packages for a great deal.

If you come, don’t forget the camera – we’d love to see a picture or two of your race getaway! You can share it with us on the Hells Canyon Visitor Bureau Facebook Page or give a shout on Twitter to @HellsCanyon.
