Astoria is the oldest town west of the Rocky Mountains, founded in 1811. It has a rich history to be seen in many museums and the town itself. We recommend the Maritime Museum, and Flavel House Museum for starters. The town has a River Walk extending from the West Mooring Basin, just west of the bridge, 4 miles east to Pier 39 with many things to see along the riverfront. A restored 1913 trolley car ride along the waterfront is a nice experience which includes a history lesson provided by the driver. Astoria has several brew pubs, the closest one is Ft. George Brewing which is an easy walk from the house. Many nice restaurants are in town, also within walking distance. Baked Alaska, Clemente's, and Fulios are some of our favorites but there are many more to choose from. Several good coffee shops are around town. Salmon and Sturgeon fishing charters are available in the nearby marina (about 1 mile west). The beach at Ft. Stevens State Park is about a 15 minute drive. Safeway and Fred Meyer grocery stores are close. The location is centrally located just up the hill from downtown Astoria and it is relatively private and quiet. It makes for a nice relaxing atmosphere with a good view of the river.
