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.
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.
