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.

First beer stop and first stop on the trip: Fort George Brewery. I had the Squash Buckler seasonal and it was DOPE.
Liberty Theatre in downtown Astoria
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.
Pan fried Willapa oysters with jalepeno jam and goat cheese (We got the cheese on the side but they’re normally pearled on top).
A shipwreck on the Oregon coast, about 10 minutes from Astoria.

Boats, no hoes, but plenty of boats in Astoria.
Third brewery stop: Rogue Public House.
Final stop was to a lighthouse outside of Astoria.
