When legendary explorers Lewis and Clark arrived in Astoria at the end of their two-year expedition, they were ready for a little R&R. But whether you're looking for a cross-country capstone or a quick getaway from the city, this picture-perfect port is a sight for sore eyes.

Escape for two nights, Sundays to Thursdays or Fridays and Saturdays starting on September 30, to Clementine's Bed and Breakfast ($209), where you don't need Sacajawea's help to see that this restored 1888 Italianate Victorian boasts some of the best views in the city.

Perched on a hill overlooking historic homes and the Columbia River, this five-bedroom B&B features featherbeds and Egyptian cotton linens, luxurious bathrobes, fresh flowers, free wireless Internet, eclectic Victorian and Asian antiques, and a complimentary happy hour serving tea and wine.

Kick off the day with a culinary voyage in Clementine's dining room, where the multi-course breakfast menu may include sweet treats, like spicy buttermilk coffee cake or baked stuffed French toast with caramelized apples, and savory dishes featuring fresh, local ingredients, like Dungeness Crab Eggs Benedict with steamed asparagus. Later you'll learn Chef Judith's secrets during a seasonal cooking class (including dinner afterwards) in Clementine's gourmet kitchen.

Fortunately you don't have to ford any rivers after your day of indulging—instead, take a self-guided walking tour of the town's many Victorian homes, including the best example of Queen Anne architecture in Oregon: the Flavel House Museum. Or learn more about Astoria's early American history at Fort Clatsop in Lewis and Clark National Historical Park and the Columbia River Maritime Museum.

If you want to follow in the footsteps of the exploring duo, take the six-mile hike across Tillamook Head, or check out a number of other nearby trails. Or, simply travel along the North Coast Craft Beer Trail.

You may not be trekking all the way across the Louisiana Territory, but a trip to Astoria will definitely go down in history as a worthwhile Escape.

  • "It's a charming little town with lots to do: eating, shopping, hiking, museums, kayaking, etc. Judith at Clementine's provides a quaint little oasis. Be sure to check out her cooking classes—she knows her way around the kitchen and the food is tasty!"
