Hi! An acquanitance told me that I should visit Astoria because I'm a big fan of lighthouses and the movie Goonies! He told me I would be able to see the house where they filmed..did he mean the house where Mikey (Sean Astin) lived..?
Also, are there several lighthouses to see? which one would be the closest?
I cannothelp being surprised by the lack of publictransportian and the dependency on private or rented cars in USA(But maybe I'm wrong, and this wasn't meant to be negative just a small contribution to the disccussion about change of climate etc.) Is there a way to get from Seattle/Tacoma airport to Astoria without renting a car?
Me and my friend are staying in Astoria for one night on a road trip down the West Coast. Anyone have any advice on where we can stay and where's good to get drunk and party?
We dock in Astoria on 24th September at 9am and depart again at 5pm, does anyone have any suggestions what we could do in approx 6 hours, not much time I know but we don't want to waste our time just walking around trying to find something to do.

A friend and I are in Tacoma, WA for only a short time and to our pleasant surprise, found that the Goonies was filmed only a short few hours from where we are!! I was wondering if you happened to know if there is a Goonies walking tour or bus tour or any kind of Goonies information there in Astoria. We would love to visit all of the filming locations, ie, Brand and Mikey's house, the Fratellis' restaurant, the lighthouse, the beach where they are found, the underground treasure, etc... ANY, repeat ANY information would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!!!!!
Are the residents of Astoria friendly to visitors? Is there a local pub or such where visitors can visit with the local folks?
