Throw Airplanes off the Astoria Column

 

  Standing in the grass at the Astoria Column, make sure you watch out for low-flying aircraft. Made of balsawood. It's a tradition that has been going on at the column for years. Visitors buy small balsawood planes at the gift shop, climb to the top of the 125-foot column and launch them into the air. Shouts and laughter of children seeing how far and fast the planes will fly through the air much like the small planes.

LEWIS & CLARK INTERPRETIVE CENTER

COLUMBIA RIVER MARITIME MUSEUM

 

Yes, we actually recommend two museums for kids! The Columbia River Maritime Museum is located in Astoria, just across the Columbia River. They have a number of exciting exhibits focused on the dangerous Columbia River Bar known as the Graveyard of the Pacific.
