Astoria's Neighbor Has Much To Offer Any Visitor.

Bordered by the Pacific Ocean in the west and the mighty Columbia River to the north.

Located on the beautiful northwestern tip of Oregon, Warrenton is most unusual in that it boasts both riverfront and oceanfront access and views. At half of the size and population of Astoria, it may lack some of the sophisticated amenities of it's arty neighbor, but it's scenic and historical features are well worth checking out, all the more so for those wishing to get out and embrace nature.

Into the Outdoors...

Want to walk in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark? Warrenton is actually closer to Fort Clatsop (where the explorers stayed at the western end of their journey) than Astoria. It also boasts another great place to hike, bike, camp and enjoy nature in Fort Stevens State Park, which has several miles of trails, temperate rainforest beauty, river, lake, and ocean views, and broad, clean, and photogenic windswept beaches.

But, Prepare for Weather...

At the confluence of both the mighty Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean you should expect the beaches to be windswept indeed (great for long walks or kite flying or para sailing). But one should also expect other weather as well. The area does see 70 inches of rain a year and is reputed to be the foggiest location in the Lower 48 states. Summer months are usually mild with days ranging from 55-70 degrees. Winters are wet and mild, usually 40-55 degrees.

Dining and Accommodations

Eateries and overnight accommodations in Warrenton, proper, are fewer in number and less flashy than they might be across Youngs Bay and might be a better choice for someone on a budget (even if the destination of your visit is actually Astoria). Good plain food that tastes great and is served well, satisfies just as well as something fancier.
