Astoria


UNCOVER ASTORIA

Astoria was the first American settlement on the Pacific Coast. Its past is thick with gamblers, bootleggers, knife-fighting fur traders, temperance crusaders, socialist dockworkers, the lost, the crazed, the KKK, and much more. After a fire destroyed much of the city in 1922, the downtown section of Astoria was completely rebuilt and remains much as it looked in 1926. It's a well-preserved remnant of America's small-city downtown past, but it's no Colonial Williamsburg. Astoria is a living, breathing place where buildings on the National Register of Historic Places house decades-old businesses alongside new concepts in brewing, cuisine, and entertainment. Every time you come, you'll get a fresh experience and a few surprises.

WHERE THE COLUMBIA MEETS THE PACIFIC

logo_icon_Y.png

Astoria is located in the northwest corner of Oregon, where US Route 30 ends its 3,073-mile journey from Atlantic City, New Jersey. To get to Astoria, find your way to Highway 30, point your windshield west, and keep going.

Between 8th and 15th Streets in downtown Astoria, Route 30 divides into Marine Drive and Commercial Street. We are centrally located in the historic downtown district at the corner of 14th and Commercial Streets.

From Portland

If you're already in Portland, just get on Route 30 heading west out of town. That's the road that peels off I-405 after the Fremont Bridge and shoots through the Northwest Industrial District. It's also known as NW Yeon Avenue, and then NW St. Helens Road, and then something else. Its name changes a bunch of times before you get to Astoria, where it's Marine Drive. You'll know you're close when you start hitting cross streets in the low-20s. At 15th Street, the highway splits into Marine Drive going west and Commercial Street going east. Stay on Marine until 12th Street, just two blocks from where the road divides. Take a left on 12th, then another immediate left onto Commercial heading back the way you came. The Commodore is at the next intersection, the northeast corner of 14th and Commercial. (That's right, there's no 13th Street in that part of Astoria.)

 

If you're coming into the Portland International Airport and want to take the fastest route to Astoria, head east out of the airport to I-205 North. Continue on I-205 until it merges with I-5 North. Go another 30 miles to Exit 36 in Longview. This puts you onto WA-432, which brings you to the Lewis and Clark Bridge (follow the signs from 432). The bridge crosses the Columbia River and drops you onto US Route 30. Go westbound, and you'll be in Astoria in no time.


From Seattle

If you're coming to Astoria from Seattle or points farther north, you can join up with US 30 in one of two ways:

1) Blast down I-5 South to Exit 36 in Longview. This puts you onto WA-432, which brings you to the Lewis and Clark Bridge (follow the signs). The bridge crosses the Columbia River and drops you onto US Route 30. Go westbound, and you'll be in Astoria in no time. There, Route 30 is known as Marine Drive until it splits into Marine Drive going west and Commercial Street going east. Stay on Marine until 12th Street, just two blocks from where the road divides. Take a left on 12th, then another immediate left onto Commercial. The Commodore is at the next intersection, the northeast corner of 14th and Commercial.

OR

2) Take the scenic route on US 101, one of America's most beautiful highways. From I-5 South, exit at Olympia and head west to US 101. You'll cross into Oregon on the majestic Astoria-Megler Bridge. Go eastbound on US 30, also known as West Marine Drive. The road splits at 8th street, putting you on Commercial Street. Keep going another 6 blocks and you're there.


From California

If you're driving to Astoria from California, or anywhere south of Portland, you have two good options:

1) The slow and scenic route. Get on US 101 going north and take your time. This is one of the most beautiful highways in America. Stop off at some of the amazing ocean-side towns along the Oregon Coast on your way. When you're almost out of Oregon, you're in Astoria. Following US 101 will take you over the majestic Astoria-Megler Bridge into Washington State. Instead of getting on the bridge, go eastbound on US 30, also known as West Marine Drive. The road splits at 8th street, putting you on Commercial Street. Keep going another 6 blocks and you're there.

OR

2) The fast way. That's I-5 North to Portland. Just before downtown, take I-405, then exit quickly to US 26 West. That takes you out to US 101 on the Oregon Coast. Turn north on 101 and go until it hits US 30 at the base of the majestic Astoria-Megler Bridge. Instead of getting on the bridge, go eastbound on US 30, also known as West Marine Drive. The road splits at 8th street, putting you on Commercial Street. Keep going another 6 blocks and you're there.
