Astoria is a small, but exceptionally vibrant town situated where the massive Columbia River pours into the Pacific Ocean in northwest Oregon. This funky little town is a blend of rich history and hip culture. Astoria’s streets are lined with lots of Victorian and Queen Anne-style buildings that give way to maritime themes as you explore the waterfront areas of town.
If you want to learn all there is to know about the town, hop on the Astoria Riverfront Trolley. Leashed dogs are welcome aboard as you tour the town and all of its historical attractions. The ride is worth the small fee!
You and your pup can get some exercise at Shively Park. This wooded park has a big grassy area, picnic shelters and restrooms. Take a walk on the .3-mile Shively Park Loop. This paved trail will take you and your leashed dog through a preserved forested area, and offers cleanup stations, too.
If your pet needs medical attention or just a yearly check-up, Astoria has two veterinary clinics to care for your furry pal.
Pet-friendly hotels abound in Astoria. The Cannery Pier Hotel is an extra memorable place to stay with your pup. On the waterfront near the iconic Astoria-Megler Bridge, this hotel offers spectacular sunset views from its updated rooms. You pooch will feel special, too, as the hotel offers non-allergenic treats to its furry guests at check-in. The hotel provides doggie cleanup bags and has a pleasant area with trees to walk your dog.
