Who among us didn't spend their childhood wishing they were a Goonie? The premise of exploring your town on the world's most awesome scavenger hunt and finding buried treasure is basically every kid's fantasy (hell, it's still something I dream of happening to me from time to time). While the Goondocks isn't really an area of Astoria, Oregon (I know, I was bummed when I realized that, too) the town itself plays a huge role in the movie-- I mean, Mikey and his friends loved growing up there so much that they were literally willing to risk life and limb to save their homes.

826 Marine Dr, Astoria, OR, US

Lower Columbia Bowl

The Lower Columbia Bowl is where Chunk smashes his pizza and milkshake into the window (except maybe don't re-enact that). It has been turned into the Oregon Film Museum, so stop inside and browse the exhibits that honor all kinds of movies filmed in Oregon, from Animal House to Free Willy and more...and yes, The Goonies is mentioned too!

Peter Iredale Road, Warrenton, OR, US

Peter Iredale Shipwreck

The scenes with One-Eyed Willie's ship, The Inferno, was filmed on a soundstage in California, but if you're up for taking a quick 20-minute drive from Astoria, you can find something just as badass-- the Peter Iredale Shipwreck. If you go at low tide, you can explore it for yourself...and who knows! Maybe you'll find some buried pirate treasure.

Ecola Park Road, Cannon Beach, OR, US

Ecola State Park

And we can't forget the gorgeous scenes of the Oregon coast, which were actually filmed 26 miles South of Astoria, at Ecola State Park (bonus: scenes from Point Break were filmed here too).

Haystack Rock

And the rock they use to navigate the map? That's the infamous Haystack Rock!

The Goonies House Film Location

The Goonies House, better known as Mikey's house, is one of the most popular attractions in Astoria, and Goonies enthusiasts can check out Data's House! (No word on if the zipline is still there...)
