Shirt drive to top and incredible views on all sides. 164 up a spiral staircase to to top of column and you can see forever. Great views from parking lot and grounds if you don't want to do the steps. Gift shop sells Balsa Wood Airplanes for a dollar, kids can fly them off the top. Great fun!

It is work to get to the top, but such a great view!! I love the feeling of being up there to see a 360 degree view of a beautiful landscape. I recommend going to the top at least once in your life.

It cost us $5 for our car to park. Once we arrived, we went to the gift shop to purchase a wooden airplane, then we climbed the 160+ stairs inside the column to see the beautiful views from outside and fly our airplanes! such a fun attraction. I walked around the grounds and read about the history of this place.... More

This was a neat column! Beautifully restored recently. Climbed all 164 steps to the top! Absolutely worth it for the pictures.

The column has been refurbished to show the historic art work on the structure itself. This makes it attractive and educational. In our travels we have seen columns, obelisks, needles and other structures, but the Astoria Column is unique. Visit on a clear day and you can see large stretches of the Columbia River including the mouth where it meets... More

My daughter and I climbed the column to get those great views, and they were worth it! The view of the rivers, bridges --even the hills and trees -- were breathtaking.

It was an awesome view! My husband and I were a little disappointed because on our honeymoon many years ago we went up an historical column that was built over 100 years ago. Thought this would be like that but it was more commercial. My 16 year old son thought it was great!

When in Astoria this is a must see. Even though it is very tiring climbing the 164 steps to the top it is well worth it. When you go buy your parking pass in the gift shop they will give you for a dollar an airplane to glide off the top. It is biodegradable so don't worry. It's very fun... More
