You want to getaway to Oregon’s coast before summer ends, and the National Park Service gives you a perfect excuse. Citizens should support their Centennial this August, and what better place to choose than Astoria’s Lewis and Clark National Historic Park? Staying at Clementine’s Bed and Breakfast puts you right in downtown Astoria, with all its restaurants and shops, and only a 10 minute drive from the Park. Plan a morning or afternoon to enjoy a leisurely paddle along the river, guided by a Park Ranger. The Lewis and Clark River Trail is a gentle, one and one-half mile meander along the river, where you can still see many of the sites viewed by those famous explorers. Imagine them drifting past the same lush riverbanks and evergreens, watching playful river otters along the stream or bald eagles soaring overhead. You’ll experience a unique perspective of the National Historic Park during this three-hour excursion in two-person watercraft, including both natural and cultural insights from your Ranger. After you debark at Netul Landing, you can continue your historical journey at the Visitor Center at Fort Clatsop.
