Top Things To Do In Astoria, Oregon
No matter where you turn in Astoria, you’ll find yourself face-to-face with the rich history of the Pacific Northwest. Originally discovered by Lewis and Clark, this was the final place where their expedition spent the harsh winter of 1805-06 at Fort Clatsop awaiting a ship to pick them up, before turning around and heading home. John Jacob Astor’s Pacific Fur Company opened their primary outpost, Fort Astoria, in 1811, making Astoria the first permanent settlement west of the Rocky Mountains.
