A is for Astoria……
Astoria is located on the Oregon coast and is named for John Jacob Astor who was an American Inventor. Lewis & Clark spent part of f 1805–1806 at Fort Clatsop which is located south of modern day Astoria. If you ride the waterfront trolley you will be able to see the rich history of Astoria and how much it has changed over the years.
If you’re a movie buff then you may have seen Astoria through the eyes of several movies including: The Goonies, Short Circuit, The Black Stallion, Kindergarten Cop, Free Willy,
My favorite part of Astoria is driving across the bridge and you have the Pacific Ocean on one side and the Columbia River on the other side. Here is a picture that captures that well:
