Volunteers spin tales of local history while the trolley chugs it's way along Astoria's riverfront. It's inexpensive and a great way to journey from one end of town to the downtown area for an afternoon lunch and early evening drinks.

Cheap & great time. Volunteers tell history as you ride. Well maintained car & track. Be aware, the trolley does stop running at 6p, so if you take it to end of line to grab a bite or whatever, call a taxi or expect a walk back!

The kids enjoy this one, we ride it at least once a year. The volunteers are enthusiastic. The reversible seats are really cool.

Take the trolley… pay your $2 each… enjoy the ride. Good ole boys who volunteer talking about their favorite town, and all the special & peculiar facts, too. Definitely worth your pennies & time!!

Like the commentary about the landmarks we were seeing while on the trolley. Pretty fun way to change the direction of the trolley also.

You can pay $1/boarding, or pay $2 for an all-day pass and use as a hop-on/hop-off ride. Approx. 1 hour round trip. Entertaining and informative. Don't miss it!

My husband and I were visiting the maritime museum when he heard the trolley arriving and thought we'd hop aboard-- so glad we did! It's a fabulous way to see the city and learn about it from the very wonderful volunteers who run it! A must do, indeed!
