Destination: Astoria, OR
Did you know that like 1,479 (give or take a few) popular movie were filmed in Astoria? Seriously. Free Willy, Kindergarten Cop, Short Circuit, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, and The Shining just to name a few. But the most popular one in my book is Goonies! So here is my Goonies Astoria tour.

The opening scene where Mama Fratelli and Frances break Jake out of jail.

Full of fun things to do and memorabilia:
[Chunk glued the statue's penis on upside-down
Chunk: How's this? 
Mikey: Oh, you idiot! You glued it on upside-down! 
Brandon Walsh: If God made it that way, you'd all be pissing in your faces! 
Chunk: Looks fine to me.

 Data's gear
 Sloth love Chunk!
Ruth! Ruth! Baby! Ruth!
Mikey's dad's museum

Data's house
Mikey's house
I might have done the truffle shuffle by the gate
 And finally haystack rock (which is actually in Cannon Beach not Astoria)
"Bye, Willy. Thanks."
