Where the River meets the Ocean
The first settlement west of the Rocky Mountains, Astoria has a history of reinventing itself. The mighty Columbia River has shaped this little city into a resilient community. Fur traders, loggers, fishers, poets, painters, and musicians, this town has been home to many over the years.
Astoria is a balancing act. It's old but feels new and exciting. It's a small town but has that big city feel about it. The locals are a tight-knit community, but we welcome travelers.
Explore art galleries and shops of local makers, tour the many breweries, museums, and historic downtown - this little town has more to offer than you may think.
The beach is just a short drive away. Head over to Fort Stevens State Park for miles of hiking and biking trails, historic sites, and boating options.
