Been a local all my life. Beautiful views and fun trails around the column. You can purchase little planes to fly off the column, at the gift shop, or, before you drive up the hill, buy a huge bag of parachute guys at a local store.

Definitely go on the Column on a Sunny day, to get the best of this experience. Bring a camera, and take pictures! You do have to walk on steep stairs to get to the top. There is no elevator, for those that can't take the stairs. If you don't work out, be ready for a good work out (you can... More

The view was obscured by rain and fog, but we won't during January. Par for the course. Throwing the $1 wooden airplane was more fun than anticipated, and it was a great vantage point to see Astoria and the Columbia. I won't come during the summer due to crowds.

This hotel is all you need to make your time in Astoria a great experience. I could easily stay in my room, not to mention, my bed, for 3 days and be happy. It's so comfortable I'd be happy just staying put. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We will continue making this our go to hotel in Astoria

This is a place you have to go. It's an emblematic place. The view you have from there is amazing and of course you have to go all the way to the top of the column. It's better if its not cloudy

The area and the history are fascinating, I've live in Oregon all my life 65yrs, and never seen it up close. If your in the area check it out. Although I was not in the best of shape and the stairs top the top was killer. Something like around 300 stairs? I didn't realize the effort until the next three... More

This was a fun way to see around Astoria. You climb the steps inside the column and have a great view from the top. It was overcast on the day we climbed up but we heard on a clear day you can see Mt. Reiner and Mt. Saint Helen's... of course you can see the Columbia River and the city... More
