Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Geotourism Project
The Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Geotourism Program covers the length of the Trail from St. Louis to the Pacific Ocean. It is a collaboration between the National Park Service and Solimar International (a Washington, D.C. based sustainable tourism consulting firm) in partnership with a number of other organizations. Together we are interested in helping communities, Native American Indian Nations, and residents along the Trail better benefit from well-managed tourism. The program will identify, map, and promote what is unique about the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail and its communities. We believe that the best travel advice comes from the people that live in a place, and therefore we want to know what is special about your place through the voices of people in your community.
A website, LewisandClark.Travel, has been established to host locally generated content—including stories and information from local tourism stakeholders and informed residents about tourism sites, attractions, and businesses. This content will provide the traveling public with information on authentic local places and experiences to visit along the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail.
