Warrenton is located where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean.
Home to many commercial fishermen and crabbers, these are rural working-class towns with all manner of boats in people’s yards, taverns where salty locals hangout and a rich history of explorers, seafaring men and their families. This area is about 15 miles north of Gearhart Ocean Inn.
