Astoria, Oregon Weekend Getaway Guide!

It's finally here! My mini weekend getaway guide to Astoria, OR! We were only there for about a day and a half so I am only sharing the places that we had time to go to. I definitely want to plan another trip back to check out even more of the city and some of the museums that are there! 
But for now, here are some of the places that we checked out and loved in Astoria, Oregon!

The Norblad Hotel: Ok, the Norblad hotel is without a doubt one of the best hotels I have stayed at! It's right in Downtown Astoria, which makes it within walking distance to so many places. The lobby was lined with vinyl records (which I really loved!) and the guy at the front desk said we could request to play one at any time. The whole vibe of the hotel was super cozy and welcoming. And the view of downtown Astoria from our room was incredible! I definitely sat in the bright red chair with a cup of coffee just looking at the window. 
If you're looking for another place to stay, right down the street is The Commodore Hotel which is owned by the same owners too! 


St. 14 Cafe: I stopped at this cute little cafe for coffee every morning! It was only a block away from our hotel, so walking there in the morning was so perfect. The first morning we were there, we stayed for breakfast too. It was so nice sitting at the window and looking out at the moody little town. Definitely the perfect place to grab your morning latte, especially since they serve Stumptown!


Fort George Brewery: This was the best shot I got of Fort George but it was one of the places that we spent the most of our time over the weekend. I'm pretty sure we went there three times over the course of two days! The food was just so good, the beer was incredible and the overall atmosphere of the place was infectious.
I discovered my new favorite beer, City of Dreams, while at Fort George too and I even found it in cans at a local grocery. If you ever get a chance to go here, do it! You won't regret it.

Buoy Brewery: Another great lunch or dinner spot was Buoy Brewery! We stopped there for lunch and a beer and were pleasantly surprised to see sea lions in the waiting area! They have a window in the floor so that you can see live sea lions hang out. It was so cool! Plus the beer and food was pretty dang good as well.

Doe & Arrow: This shop is perfect for any boho, vintage loving babe out there! This shop had lots of cute clothing, vinyl, and even a section for guys as well. The shop owner was so nice too! She was offering lavender mimosas to the customers while they shopped, and they were so yummy! I loved her window displays as well. The whole shop was just curated so well and interesting to look at.

Chariot Home: This dreamy little shop felt made me feel like I never left Portland. The ceramics and home decor were so dreamy! I even left with a little planter myself. This shop just really spoke to me and I could just sit and admire the display and every little corner. One of my favorite stops from the entire trip.

These are just a few of the places we checked out while we were in Astoria, Oregon but there are so many that we didn't get a chance to check out. The antique shops are definitely a must see as well! You never know what you mind end up finding. I've heard great things about Coffee Girl for another place to get coffee. The museums in Astoria are another popular place to go. Vintage Hardware was another fun place to check out, they even had a giant Operation game! There are lots of great hikes nearby as well! Or check out the Riverwalk to see more of Astoria. We went to the Megler Bridge while we were leaving too (as seen in the first photo).

Astoria is just short two hour drive from Portland and only about 15 minutes away from the Oregon Coast. This quaint little coastal town is such a hidden gem and perfect for a little getaway. I can't wait to go back!

Make sure and check out the Travel Astoria site for even more information!
