Standing winsomely on one of the numerous peninsulas on the Oregon coast, Warrenton is a jewel of northern Oregon beach culture. Across the Bay from Astoria, Oregon’s oldest city, Warrenton is awash in magnificent ocean-drenched national parks, seaside mountain views and is home to a plethora of stunning sights. The final point of Lewis & Clark’s expedition, (marked by Fort Clatsop), Warrenton is probably most famous for its sublime network of beautiful waterfalls which dot the landscape. Locals and visitors enjoy whale watching along one of the most active blue whale migration lanes in the world. Some of the country’s finest hiking and biking paths exist along coastal trails that take nature lovers through Bald Eagle habitat.
Historic landmarks in Warrenton include the eerie Peter Iredale shipwreck. The ill-fated ship ran aground in 1906 while attempting to access the Columbia River. The site is known as the Graveyard of the Pacific and has claimed more than 2000 ships. Warrenton has a vibrant culture and is one of the nation’s best spots for streetside and private antique sales. Many beautiful one of a kind homes in spectacular locations are available for sale. Hidden mountainside cabins, sprawling estates, waterfront homes, and gated communities await discerning investors in this historic western community.
