Astoria: Rich with history and beauty 

At the mouth of the Columbia River Astoria is Oregon's quintessential seaport town.

Astoria is the oldest American settlement west of the Rockies. 

If you are interested in delicious, fresh seafood, family fun, breathtaking sights, and the simple pleasures of a small, yet world-class seaport, Astoria is the place for you! As you dine in one of the many restaurants located on the piers, you'll be able to see the many ocean-going ships travelling to-and-from Portand , a major west-coast port.

Named for John Jacob Astor , Astoria will wrap you up in its proverbial fingers! The Astoria Column is a required stop!
