You’re Not An Official Oregonian Until You’ve Climbed To The Top Of This Historic Tower

Astoria is one of the Oregon coast’s loveliest cities, and a popular spot for a weekend getaway. It’s also home to the Astoria Column, and if you’ve never climbed it, you’ll want to visit asap.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

While you’re in Astoria, you’ll certainly want to grab an order of the world’s best fish and chips from this humble little fishing boat, and take a tour through town on this waterfront trolley.
