Oregon's North Coast: A Mix of History, Beauty and Fun.

The weather in the north is a little cooler and wetter. But that's no reason for not having fun and lots of it. Just expect to be enjoying a different sort of beach fun than only working on your tan. Since this is where Louis and Clark stayed when they came west, many communities and landmarks have a story to tell.

Astoria, Oregon
