Astoria-Megler Bridge reviews
What an awesome experience and it connects two beautiful areas. Don't just pass through Astoria. At the least, drive through the town and check out the vibe. more »
A most impressive bridge. There aren't so many things in this world that are attractive from any angle you see them, but this one. Give's your heart a little flutter each time you round a corner... more »
How do you rate a bridge...it supported the car and we travel across the mouth of the Columbia which saved us from swimming, always nice since this part of the Columbia, shipwreck's aren't unheard of. The bridge was safe and has a great roller coaster like down part perfect for winter sledding. I hope this helps. Oh and it goes from Oregon to Washington or visa versa.
This beautiful bridge connects Oregon and Washington. In rain or sunshine, at sunrise or sunset this bridge is great to photograph. It is an easy drive to either side as well. The bridge is only one lane each direction so pack some patience, there are times where it can be very busy. Enjoy the scenery as you cross. There are often ships anchored on the river, to the east that are clearly visible from the bridge.
