So a few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to head out to Astoria on the north coast for a long weekend with some friends, and I jumped at the chance.

The oldest township on the western coast, Astoria is a tiny former trading post, full of stories and adventure. From Lewis & Clark’s final journey to the Pacific Ocean to current day, crazy sea to river crossing, the town has been shaped by heroic characters.
