Situated on the Columbia River, the historic city of Astoria was actually the Pacific Coast’s first established US settlement. In visiting the quaint region, you can certainly see the imprint of history just about everywhere. From the Lewis and Clark reenactments to the newly refurbished Liberty Theater, Astoria really does bring Oregon’s past to life.
And while visitors may come to Astoria for the old-time sights and sounds, they inevitably end up falling in love with the many activities, dining options and natural attractions that it offers. Hiking, mountaineering, investigating Pacific Northwest wildlife, along with enjoying all sorts of water-based sports help make your stay in Astoria exciting—never a dull moment on the Columbia!
  • OUTDOOR ATTRACTIONS

    It is a port city after all, so between boating, fishing, kayaking, and watching the numerous sea lions who tend to visit the docks, you really never run out of fun outdoor options. Saddle Mountain is another popular pastime. Hiking boots definitely recommended.

  • WEATHER (IF YOU DON'T MIND RAIN)

    Year round you can expect fairly moderate temperatures. Barely any snow in the winter months (lots of rain though), and rarely does it get blazing hot in the summers.

  • DINING OUT

    From quaint bistros to true fine dining establishments, the city knows how to entice your taste buds. Not to mention, the area is also renowned for some of its local beers. With a vibrant brewery right downtown, there’s always something good on tap.

THE WEATHER
  • The winter is easily the wettest season of the year with monthly rain of about ten inches from November through January. Temperatures are mild. It is the slow season as it is too rainy for a lot of what the outdoors has to offer.

  • Early spring is still rainy, but it dries by May. Late spring can be a good time to visit. April and May start seeing a lot of local events to kick off the dryer weather.

  • Summer is a high time for tourism. The summers are incredibly mild and dry. Daily highs only reach the upper 60s.

  • Early fall is sunny, mild, and dry. Late fall is rainy and cool.
