Astoria Riverwalk Professional Reviews and Guides
"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."
