AS you drive over the bridge the view both up the Columbia River and toward the Pacific Ocean is great on a clear day

This bridge isn't any old bridge. If you have a fear of crossing bridges, don't cross the Astoria Megler. It is 4.1 miles long and is only two lanes. It was built to withstand 150 mph winds which gives you a clue how stormy it gets out there with the Pacific Ocean meeting the Mighty Columbia River. There is lots to see and do on the Washington side and worth the drive.

Awesome 4 1/2 mile bridge! It spans from Astoria to SW Washington. You can't miss seeing it of your almost anywhere in Astoria.

Heck yes! I'd rate this #3 in the West, behind the Oakland Bay and the Golden Gate in San Francisco. Good for roller coaster enthusiasts as well. And since this one is free, it's quite a bargain. I only wish I had a video of the drive. If you only go across it once, Northbound is the most exciting.

We have passed over this bridge numerous times and every time we have seen freighters and fishing boats coming and going. What a beautiful site!
