Astoria, named for famed fur trader John Jacob Astor, resides near the mouth of the Columbia River.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Cannon Beach and Seaside Aquarium. Venture out of the city with trips to Manzanita Beach (in Manzanita), Hands On Children's Museum (in Olympia) and Cannon Beach (Haystack Rock, Oswald West State Park, & more). There's still lots to do: appreciate the history behind Astoria Column, work some fitness into your day at Astoria Oregon Riverwalk, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Lewis And Clark National And State Historical Parks, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Fort Clatsop National Memorial.

To see maps, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Astoria road trip website .

Keep things going the next day: explore and take pictures at Cape Perpetua Visitor Center - Siuslaw National Forest, try for a hole-in-one at Sandland Adventures, and then take in the dramatic natural features at Thor's Well.
