Climb the Astoria Column

Perched above the city, the Astoria Column is a grand example of 1920s civic pride, a 30-meter-tall (125-foot-tall) Trajan’s Column–style spiral of local history in colorful low-relief paintings. An inner staircase takes you to a lofty viewing platform. Your reward? Panoramic vistas of the mighty Columbia River, downtown Astoria, Oregon’s Coast Range and, in the distance, the Pacific Ocean.
