Visit Cannon Beach if you're a Goonies fan

Where: Ecola state park, Astoria, Oregon

When a group of kids finds a treasure map believed to have belonged to One-Eyed Willy, a legendary 17th-century pirate, they set off in search of his buried riches with the hope that they will be able to save their homes from foreclosure. The Steven Spielberg adventure-comedy The Goonies developed such a cult following that Astoria celebrates the movie's anniversary every few years with a big festival.

The festival includes a bus tour to filming locations and screenings of The Goonies at the local theatre. If you can't make the festival but still want to relive the beach scenes, grab your bike and head to Cannon Beach in Ecola state park.
