While hosting at Ft. Stevens State Park, we also visited near-by Astoria. It is a beautiful little town with a lot of history. Astoria is a seaport, located just a few miles up the Columbia River from the Pacific Ocean and is the first port on the way to Portland. The following are a collection of some of the sites that we visited in the two months that we spent here.

The Astoris Water Front Sturgeon Fishermen Washington in the distance. The Columbia river bridge, seven  miles long.

There are many spectacular beach views all along the Oregon Coast as you travel south from Ft. Stevens.

In the town of Astoria is a small, but noteable museum of fire equipment and fire trucks. This one is even free!
