An email from TripAdvisor arrived, touting a new list they’ve compiled, “23 Great American Small Cities to Visit in 2018,” noting that Astoria is No. 12 ( The photo shown is courtesy of TripAdvisor.

“We’ve picked some of the following small cities for their upcoming events, their character-packed neighborhoods, and their developing culinary scenes,” the press release says. “Others are featured simply because they offer all the vibrancy you’d expect of a city, but with that mellowed edge. … Some of these cities are in the swing of regeneration — others don’t need to change a thing.”

Take your choice which group Astoria falls into, but it’s featured primarily for managing “a balance of rustic and hip.”
