Astoria Area Information
Welcome to Astoria ~ The Oldest Settlement West of the Rockies!
But don’t let the fact that Astoria just celebrated its 200th birthday fool you into thinking we’re just another boring old town! Astoria is rich in history and offers something for all ages who visit this eclectic town of 10,000. Situated on the northern most tip of Oregon – Astoria was celebrated as the liveliest boom town on the west coast and was well-known for “shanghaiing” unsuspecting young men from bars and brothels only to wake up as unwilling deck hands on merchant ships heading out to sea. The Columbia River bar is known as “The Graveyard of the Pacific” due to the number of ships that never made it across this notorious bar noted to be one of the most treacherous river bars in the world.
Astoria was also known as the “Salmon-canning capital of the world” with fish canneries on docks and piers all along this riverfront town. Its San Francisco style hillsides are speckled with historic homes each boasting their own fascinating story and a home owner excited to share them with visitors passing by.
Rich in history of Lewis & Clark – visitors have a multitude of things to see and do to learn more about their travel to Astoria and setting up the encampment that resulted in Astoria being the Oldest Settlement West of the Rockies. A great starting point to your adventure is the Astoria Column which sits atop Coxcomb Hill – the highest point in Astoria – and is a “must see” for anyone visiting. The story of Astoria from Lewis & Clark to the arrival of the train is hand painted on the entire circumference of this 125 ft. tall monument. Climb the 164 steps to the top and you will be treated with a magnificent view like no other; kids big and small will have fun launching balsa wood gliders from the viewing deck down to the ground below.
The historic downtown district runs along the edges of the mighty Columbia River. One of the highlights is a four mile paved river walk that’s perfect for strolling, dog walking, jogging, biking, roller blading or just sitting on one of the many benches that face the river to watch the ever changing view of river traffic. Don’t want to walk? No problem, hop aboard “Old 300” a fully restored 1913 streetcar that runs on train tracks next to the river walk. Restored, maintained and operated by a volunteer group of Astoria residents, for $1 a volunteer shares stories about our local history, the people, the characters, our local attractions and more during this 4 mile journey along the river’s edge. On a daily basis you get an up close view of freighters, tugs and fishing boats to the US Coast Guard practicing life-saving rescues or boarding incoming vessels for security and safety precautions.
Astoria is becoming a destination hot spot with a growing reputation for its excellent upward mix of locally owned restaurants and bistros, arts & culture and an ever growing list of attractions. Are you a movie buff? Astoria has been the filming location for hundreds of movies – surprisingly the largest draw being the “The Goonies” which has become a cult classic with a world-wide following that brings visitors from all over the world to visit Astoria. In fact, Astoria is now home to the Oregon Film Museum which is housed in the old county jail – featured in the opening scene of The Goonies. Be sure to pick up a copy of the Movie Location Guide that will lead you to other movie locations filmed in Astoria like Kindergarten Cop, Free Willy, Teenage Mutant Turtles, Short Circuit, The Black Stallion, Benji the Hunted, The Ring II and many more!
There are so many characteristics of Astoria that make it such a magical place and one of the most important is the “people”. You are never a stranger when you visit Astoria but instead you are a very welcomed guest in a town where the people are friendly, helpful and always ready to share colorful stories about our history and help you find your way around. As you stroll through our vibrant downtown don’t be surprised when the locals have a smile on their face and make a point just to say “Hi”.
