Astoria-Warrenton Crab and Seafood Festival | Youngs Bay Bridge |
This small coastal community was named for an early settler, D.K. Warren. The visitor information center (503-861-1031) sits at 143 S Hwy 101 at the edge of Youngs Bay Shopping Center. The Warrenton-Hammond Historical Society now staffs the center and has historical displays of the area. Lighthouse Park in Warrenton features a model lighthouse. At the end of the road is Fort Stevens, the United States’ major defense for the mouth of the Columbia from the Civil War until the end of World War II. You can visit a museum and tour the old batteries on foot or in a vehicle. Old Fort Stevens is part of Fort Stevens State Park. Camping here is popular, and reservations should be made. Enjoy miles of hiking and bicycle paths.
