Exploring Astoria, Oregon

One of the difficulties of being a traveling student family was not having a lot of control over our schedule. One thing I did like, though, was staying in each place for about a month. It was enough time to finish seeing the obvious touristy places, and move on to exploring.

And one Saturday in Astoria we did just that.

We walked along the wharf and took the kids out onto the pier, which they thought was fascinating.

We also took a trolly along the coastline.

And crossed the famous Astoria bridge into Washington.

  1. We made a pit stop in Astoria on our road trip! It’s such a quaint little fishing town. I loved the colorful little houses on the hillside. I wish I had known there was a trolley, that would have been fun! We went to the Astoria column then swung by the beach to see the shipwreck. Great town!
