We took a guided tour of the city of Astoria including homes and history. The Astoria Column, which is 125 ft high, remembers some of the important events in Astoria’s history and was designed as a tourist attraction.
Then we visited CapeDisappointment and had a good tour of exhibits covering its history and why the Columbia River is the most dangerous river entrance in the world. There are also numerous YouTube videos showing how dangerous it is.
We then returned to Astoria for a picnic lunch near the bridge and at the maritime memorial.
