We flew into PDX and headed to the coast. This was the perfect place to stop and stretch our legs! The kids had so much fun with the gliders. There are beautiful views from the parking lot for those not able to climb the stairs.
The view itself is spectacular but for $0.50 you can get yourself a balsa wood glider and send it sailing off the top of the tower. It’s 170 steps- I counted- but worth it! Or splurge and get 3 like my husband and I did,...More
This is a must see when inAstoria. The mural on the outside of the column is amazing. Although we did not take the 164 stairs up the spiral staircase, I bet the view of the land below would be breathtaking - even better than it...More
Nice ride up to the column. Great view of the mouth of the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean. Those who want to go up into the column to the top have many steps to climb. Finish with an ice cream cone near the monument.

Entry/parking fee of five dollars. Great view both at the bottom and top of the column. There is a small gift shop.

the $5 parking fee is the only fee, well worth the money for the spectacular views and a full year of visits if you plan to travel back to the area. Definitely recommend purchasing the little planes in the gift shop before heading upstairs if you have kids! I don't know how much they are as we were unaware of this before we climbed but we saw several kids having a blast with them.
