Portland’s beach resort town of the early 1900s sits on the northwestern tip of Oregon, where the Columbia River empties into the Pacific Ocean. Lewis and Clark’s 8,000-mile trek in search of the Northwest Passage brought them here in 1805, making this town the West’s oldest American settlement and a National Historic District. Later the Spokane, Portland & Seattle Railway brought city folk to the beach on Friday night for a weekend on the coast. Today bridges and boardwalks, canneries and cafes, docks and decks, galleries, and espresso shops decorate the riverfront with history, views, and tourist delights.
