Astoria Weekend

For a $1-($2 fon/off) you get about an hour of very informative info from the retired Vets who donate their time. We really enjoyed.

Quaint, but not that special. Trolleys are everywhere in historic cities. If they made its trek longer and bring back the shanghai tunnel tours the wharf sightseeing could be great, but I guess the town's on hard times.

Thank you Bob Carson and the rest of the trolley drivers.. What a great way to get to learn a bit more about Astoria than a ride on a trolley. Great thing is, they will drop you off just about anywhere on the route and pick you up the same way, just make sure you have a dollar bill to... More

Seriously, this is the most fun I've had for a dollar in a long time. The trip is about an hour long, and the volunteers talk about everything along the way. I learned some very interesting things about Astoria (did you know Clark Gable started his acting career there??), and had some chuckles along the way. I can't say enough... More

The volunteers that work the trolley are a wealth of information. The trip is about 1 hour and is well worth the time. You can get off and on the trolley for a small fee.

We started out walking the river walk, and got to see the sea lions up close but with three kids under the age of 7, we were soon tired and the trolley continually passing is by was just too tempting to pass up. It cost $1 to ride ($2 for a all day ticket) and so on we got. The... More

This trolley takes you on a 1 hour exciting round trip. Like the name suggests, the entire travel is along with river. The driver and conductor both were local guys who knew a lot about the area. So they gave a lot of information on Astoria and also the Columbia river. They also shared some interesting facts of buildings, restaurants,... More

At $2.00 a person, the authentic trolley is a treasure. An volunteer maintained & run, the engineers are delightful, knowledgeable, and kind. Definitely worth doing! We will be back!

We we're spending a couple days in Astoria and decided to check out the trolley. It is a fun way to burn a little time and see Astoria's riverfront area. The gentleman acting as our "tour guide" was fun and had lots of interesting facts and stories about the area. It was also a good way to scope out many... More
