We began our day trip to the northwest Oregon Coast by making the 80 mile drive from Portland to Cannon Beach. There, we walked along the boardwalk, overlooked the beach, and grabbed some ice cream. Next, we headed a short way up the road to Ecola Park, where we were treated to amazing coastal views. Then it was on to Astoria, where we stopped to see the house featured in The Goonies movie, climbed the 125′-tall Astoria Column for sweeping views to the mouth of the Columbia River, and capped the day with a great dinner at Bridgewater Bistro.
