On our final day in Oregon we woke up early to take the scenic route down from Mt. Hood to Portland. The drive along the Columbia River Gorge was breathtaking! We stopped at Multnomah Falls for a little mid-trip hike. Once we were back near Portland, we buzzed over to the coast and had lunch at Cannon Beach. We walked throughout town and took a stroll on the beach to see the famous Haystack Rock.
From here, we drove up to Astoria, Oregon, and checked into the Cannery Pier Hotel! Situated right on the Columbia River, the hotel is the site of a former fish cannery. We really loved everything about the Cannery Pier! Upon our arrival, we found out that The Goonies, a favorite film from our childhood, was filmed right there in Astoria! We hopped on the hotel’s bicycles and rode down to the house where Mikey lived. Too cool, right?
We enjoyed a great meal and a view of the riverfront at Bridgewater Bistro that night. Astoria was most definitely the best way to end such an incredible trip – we had no idea how much we would love it!
