Astoria is about a 2 hour drive from Portland, and lies at the mouth of the Columbia River, where it collides with the Pacific Ocean. Astoria has a lot to offer and makes for a perfect weekend get-away for families. There is no actual beach in Astoria, to get that you need to go 20 minutes down the road to Warrenton, but you are on the river, and you can see plenty of sea activity from sea lions to the massive cargo ships making their way up and down the river.

As someone who has traveled all over the world with the kids, I find Italy to be one of the most child-friendly places on the planet.

My husband and I have always loved to explore the outdoors; before having children, we had many outdoor adventures together. When I became pregnant with our son, we were told over and over that once he arrived, all our outdoor adventures would have to come to an end, at least for the first couple years. Oh, how those folks were wrong.
We were determined to continue our outdoor adventures and to share them with our little guy, and we weren’t willing to wait until he was “older”. He went hiking for the first time at 6 weeks old and camping at 9 months old. He has been on a 3 week road trip to the Pacific Northwest, camped for a week in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, spent 10 days camping in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park, and we just got back from a 2 week trip to Glacier National Park. He has visited 7 national parks and he’s barely 17 months old!
