Goonies never say Die!
Since I moved to the Pacific Northwest, we have been going to check out goonies film locations over the years. I like to take progressive photos there with the kids. It is a great tradition we have!
The Goonies was filmed all over Astoria, and you can see the locations of the movie all over town.
So I just wanted to start off by saying that some of these locations, including the “Goonies House” are private homes and are private property. The owner does not mind you seeing the house and taking a few photos, but please be respectful when you park and when you are doing your observations.
With that being said, I would go to the Jailhouse first and get your Goonies gear to wear for your photo ops 🙂
Fun Fact – Astoria is an old port town and is the oldest city in the state of Oregon; WHAT?!?! Yep, it is true! I love learning history.
The history of Astoria is pretty impressive.. Anywho… It has that old town charm right located off the Columbia River, where it meets the Pacific Ocean.
Being in my 40’s, I grew up watching the Goonies, and we watched it over and over again. Now my kids watch it, and we visit Astoria every couple of years because it still is one of the greatest movies of all time.
Goonie house – Address: 732 Duane St, Astoria, OR 97103
Data’s house – right next door
Oregon Film Museum – Also the goonies jailhouse. 732 Duane Street
Flavel House Museum – located across from the museum.
The Goonies Fratelli’s 1984 Jeep Cherokee – with bullet holes – Located at the OFM. It is an excellent place for more photos.
Mouths house – 32 Skyline Ave. Astoria, Or. 97103
Port of Astoria’s East Mooring Basin. – Right by the water, you can see the docks from the Goonie house. I threw this in there because it is a fun place to visit and has hundreds of seals ready to bark at you 🙂
Astoria Coffee Co.
Haystack Rock – located in Cannon Beach, Oregon- this is about an hour south of Astoria. It is a ways away.
Ecola State Park is the park where they filmed the kids riding bikes through the forest. It is right next to Cannon Beach. This is a favorite of the Goonies film locations.
We always like going to Astoria and stopping by the Goonies house. You can visit the house again. You must park on the road and walk up the driveway. They also have a donation box so that you can leave a tip. It was actually closed off and tarped up a couple of years ago because visitors were not respectful of the property, so please be respectful. I would go midday and make it quick.
After we left, we hit up the Oregon Film Museum, and that was a blast. It is a little museum of all the movies filmed in Oregon and has some fun props to take photos with. They also have a cute visitors’ store with some fun souvenirs.
