Astoria has a fantastic Maritime Museum, Bow Picker across the street for fish and chips - always a line, $2 to ride the trolly with naration by the conductor. The Column is interesting but not high on our list. I've been kayaking on the Lewis and Clark River and Ft Stevens lake. Ft Stevens is a great CG and you can walk on the beach.

If the fish are running expect to see a thousland boats on the Columbia. The Columbia Bar BTW is the most dangerous in the world. About 300 major ship wrecks and the Maritime museum has a map. Kids love the museum.


Totally agree Astoria and the mentioned attractions are well worth it. Also as said before north to south on the Oregon coast is the best see way more things that way.

Interesting country. I like the towns with commercial fishing fleets.
Be ready for a lot of rain.
Sometimes being on the Coast is like living in a cloud.

Bow picker... closed
Maritime Museum... closed.. says they’re open, but not
Boiler Bay overlook... closed
Roadside pullouts... closed
Very few sit down restaurants open, and definitely no free sardine samples.

That is the state of affairs up here on the Coast as of July 26th.

Might want to check to see what will be open before you make the trip. As we get closer to November, there will most likely be another lockdown, and more venues closed.

Thanks to all. A lot of food for thought which is what we like about having forums like this.

Maybe on the north coast, things are starting to open on the central coast. Several restaurants open for limited indoor seating, many carry out only still. Most pullouts from Newport south open.

We have been to Oregon twice in September, however not with the pandemic thing in our way. If things open up and you decide to go this September there is definitely lots to see and do. The weather can be foggy and overcast or pure sun on September.
If things do open up the dunes in Florence are well worth seeing and doing. If restaurants are open the Bridgewater Fish House in Florence is a must (reservations probably required) In Newport Beach the Aquarium if open is a must, Live Oceans Cafe in the port area is great food if open, Nye Beach is worth a stroll in Newport.
Cape Perpetuia and the surrounding natural wonders are amazing. All the lighthouses are neat. Old Town in Bandon. It goes on and on. Probably one of the most beautiful drives along the coast is in the Yachats area.
If you are able to go yes the Oregon Coast is worth every minute of your trip, provided things are open due to our ongoing conditions.

Fog and rain on the Oregon coast? That would be a bummer but not allowed when I'm visiting!

Years ago we stopped at a local WA coast market in pouring rain. We're in the car putting on hats and coats when a car pulled up and the locals in T shirts got out and were walking around in the rain. I said to DW - We're definitely not locals. [emoticon]

Whats Nov got to do with it? I thought the virus was contagious in any month.

Smart on doing the jet boats. You will get wet and have a blast. The ride is surprisingly smooth, but your butt gets a little tired.

Do at least the 80 mile trip. https://www.roguejets.com/ The two spots that they do the meal stops both have good food and decent prices.

Our go to place is Kimball's Creek. http://www.kimballcreek.com/ They are the only RV park on the river with a dock that Jerry's stops at. You can book at the park. Place is a little dated but clean, lot of full timers and great people.

If southbound GPS will route you off 101 north of Gold Beach on Edson Creek Road and it is a good county road.
