The folk here are new to cruises. This port has only been in service for a few years, relative to some others. You will find a warm, friendly welcom from the citizens and local businesses. The tram that leaves close to the pier allows hop-on, hop-off service all the way to town (US $1.00 when we were there)

The Bowpicker is a must do. It's a land docked boat on an empty lot. They sell fish and chips from freshly caught fish. They close when they run out. Marine and 17th streets. Across the street from Columbia River Maritime Museum.
Astoria is building itself into a tourist destination. The citizens are extremely friendly and ready to help. Walk the boardwalk into the town centre or take the tram and hop on hop off along the route. If you dock on a farmers' market day, you'll be in for a treat.
We really enjoyed our tour to Mount St. Helen's.

I can’t believe in all these reviews there is no mention of the house from the movies “the Goonie’s” or the school from “kindergarten cop” as well as the location to many twilight movies (so I don’t seem like an old man) This is a great little town. Seafood is crazy good, beer place in town is fantastic. I don’t think people did their research before they went. I forgot what the Astoria tower is known for but it is just a monument but the view from there is killer!
The port was great. We walked around. Enjoyed the great view.

Took an all day tour to Mt. St. Helen, the volcano, one of the best tours ever.

Although we stayed on the ship during this port, Astoria is a cute nostalgic city to visit. We'd already been there multiple times so decided to experience what it feels like to stay on board while in port.

Nice. Did the shopping excursion to Cannon Beach and Seaside. Only one hour though at each stop. Being in port for 12 hours they certainly could have given us more time.
