Even if you don't like fishing, fishing towns have an undeniable charm that is hard to resist. If you want to spend a vacation somewhere without crowds of tourists, set your eyes on Astoria, Oregon.
For over a century, the town's life has revolved around its abundant supply of salmon, which has fed locals in more ways than one.
