We will be parked and ready by 10AM but will not leave until 11AM. Please walk off the port as if you were going to catch the trolly. We will be before the trolly, we will have signs out!! It is about a 1/2 city block. We are the only small white bus.
We will be ready to greet you with stories. Any questions please feel free to text 206-965-0132 or 360-270-4568. Bill and I are excited for this day!
We go to the Astoria Column where we stay there for approx. 20 minutes. Try climbing the 164 stairs, Katie will be giving a story on top with what you are actually seeing. If you do not climb, that’s okay. Bill will be giving the same story down on ground.
We then hop back on the bus and show you our beautiful view and historic homes. Our next stop is the Flavel house and Film Museum, we stay approx. for 20 minutes, just enough time to view the Goonies Jeep, the historic jail and walk the beautiful grounds of the Flavel home.
When we all get back on the bus, we will drive through town showing some of our amazing buildings and heritage. We will also point out some places such as the Goonies house, Kindergarten Cop grade school. Our next stop is Pier 39 where we walk over the bridge greeted by Sea lions on a dock out in the water. This is a ½ hour stop, just enough time for everyone to choose a fresh cool beer, or have the tastiest coffee and homemade pastries, or to buy a heart lock and sign it and add it to the locks of love collection. We also walk through the Bumble Bee Tuna Museum, guiding our guest through history. On the Pier they have a fantastic vending machine where you can buy an Astoria post card and stamp and so many more random things.
When we get back on the bus, we ask the group how they feel on time. If we all have more time to share, we have the group to choose a few more stops such as: Columbia River Maritime Museum, Fort George Brewery, Josephson’s Smoke House, Underground stories and my favorite antique shop. We also been known to take people to Fort Stevens State Park if we have enough time.
