Astoria, Oregon

Getting the chance to take a Daycation is something that when the planets and stars align for it to happen, you have to act quickly. We decided on Astoria, Oregon mainly because I have been in Seattle for two years and haven’t been to the Oregon coast. It’s a 3.5 hour drive from Seattle and if you get up early, there’s plenty of time to enjoy Astoria’s breweries, shopping, and the Goonies house. Thankfully, the dude and I scored an excellent waterfront room at Cannery Pier Hotel.

Couldn’t have felt more like a baller at Cannery Pier Hotel. Each room has a view of the Columbia River, a deck and a fireplace. There’s a wine hour at 4PM, a sauna and hot tub, and vintage cars available for a ride into town. Since it’s still technically the off season, the rates are very reasonable.

Second beer stop: Buoy Beer Company, one of the newer additions to Astoria. They have excellent food, brews, and a window to look at the sea lions that hang out under the pier.
