I for one wanted to visit this beautiful place ever since "Kindergarden Cop" and "The Goonies" where filmed back in the 80s.

The river, the hills, and the ocean where so attractive on those films that I wanted to visit this place ever since. Finally, I decided to pack a few things and headed to Astoria via highway 101 starting on Brookings. The trip is about 365 miles long but the scenery along the way is breath taking!

Astoria had been in my mind all these years and now I got to experience a unique atmosphere in real life rather than imagining it every time I watch those films. Astoria ColumnThere are a lot of things to do in Astoria and if you are planning to visit, make sure you stay more than a couple of days so you can explore what it has to offer.

Things to do in Astoria are visiting the historic museums but the most recommended by the locals is the "Columbia River Maritime Museum." "Make sure you visit this museum because it is a world class." - Said one of the residents.

Another place to visit is the Astoria Column." It seems everyone talks about it because everywhere we went people recommended it.
