Consider yourself a modern day explorer as you board your bus for an exploration of the "oldest American settlement west of the Rockies". Join the ranks of other important visitors, starting with Captain Robert Gray in 1792, Lewis and Clark's corps of discovery in 1805, and now you.
Travel first to Fort Clatsop, winter home of Lewis and Clark which is now a detailed replica of how the fort was described in Clark's journal. After a 1-hour guided tour, you will depart for a visit to the Astoria Column, with its breathtaking views that take in Astoria, the Columbia River, the Megler Bridge, and magnificent panoramas all the way to Washington.
Heading back, you will travel through Astoria past Famous Union Town, the Doughboy monument and the acclaimed Columbia River Maritime Museum, designated Oregon's official State Maritime Museum. A final tour stop here allows you to enjoy this outstanding institution that has 24,000 feet of exhibit space and was the first nationally accredited maritime museum in the western United States.
