Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

It's not only tourists who fall in love with the city, its history and spectacular scenery, but also movie companies. Did you know that the town of Astoria has been featured in many of the most popular movies of the '80s and '90s? Join guides from the Clatsop County Historical Society for a two-hour tour of the many locations with photo stops along the way.

After boarding your school bus you'll travel past the "Goonies" house. This charming Victoria-style home had a starring role as the home of the main characters in The Goonies, the 1985 comedy adventure starring Sean Astin and Josh Brolin. Further on is the Astoria Column on Coxcomb Hill, Astoria's highest point. Standing a majestic 125 feet high, the Column was used as the backdrop for Kindergarten Cop, Free Willy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, The Goonies, and Short Circuit.

Then, you'll continue through the town and travel past the Short Circuit house before stopping at Red Lion Hotel. The hotel and the nearby Seafare Restaurant were used during the filming of Kindergarten Cop starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. In addition to seeing a little bit of Hollywood history, the views here of the Columbia River and the Astoria-Megler Bridge are breathtaking.

Next, you'll head back towards the center of town and stop at the Flavel House Museum. Built in 1885, it's one of the best-preserved examples of Queen Anne-style architecture in the Northwest and its exterior was seen in the movie The Goonies.

Your last stop before heading back to your ship is the old Clatsop County Jail. Used from 1914 to 1976, the jail is not only noted for being the longest used, freestanding jail in Oregon but The Goonies, Come See The Paradise and Short Circuit were filmed here.
