After lunch we visited Fort Clatsop in Lewis & Clark National Historical Park, walking through a small replica of the fort and an interesting pictorial museum of artifacts and information. People there were Very friendly!
We stopped on our way to Portland. The fort is a nice rebuilt and volunteers share a wealth of information. The small museum gives a lot of information about the Lewis and Clark expedition. In all a worth while 90 min stay.
Most people coming to the coast will visit Seaside or Fort Stevens. But many miss one of the best sites to see on the Oregon coast.

We took the kids for family history since we are related to John Coulter who was on the expedition with Lewis and Clark. The kids enjoyed the fort and the trail walking. A great family place
