Restored tower is a beauty, the new spiral stairs are not for weak of heart or legs. I am not fond of height and did promptly lean on tower and looked out not dowwwwwn, nooo waaaay.

The Astoria Column gives you the best views in town. If you go, be prepared to climb quite a few stairs to get to the top. You may get out of breath but the views are worth it. Spectacular!!

what a beautiful piece of art and you can go inside it and get perhaps the most spectacular view on the entire Oregon coast. Do not miss this if you are in Astoria...it's free if you walk to it or two dollars is requested if you park there.

Wonderful panoramic views of Astoria and the river. The drive back down was eventful in that a doe and fawn were grazing in the street and walked right in front of the car. i stopped and let them keep grazing, even after they moved to the side, and i drove by, they only looked up then down and kept eating. it was every bit as breathtaking as the view from the top.
