Astoria/Warrenton

Astoria/Warrenton

Just 20 miles north of Seaside, Astoria, population 10,00, is located on the Columbia River, just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean. Founded 200 years ago at the beginning of Oregon's North Coast, Astoria has been through boom and bust times more than once, weathering the collapse of both the Columbia River fishery and Oregon timber industry. It has risen once again as a cultural haven, often referred to as "little San Francisco." Astoria is an old place that is newly hip. Here, Victorian mansions and maritime relics live in harmony with chef-driven restaurants and tattoo parlors.
