Olympia is located at the tip of the Puget Sound about 60 miles south of Seattle and 110 miles north of Portland, Oregon. Olympia is a special community and desirable city because of a combination of its energetic, creative, and farsighted people and its beautiful northwest setting. There is an endless amount of things to do an see, from fine performances, either music, live theater or film from the WA Center for the Performing Arts, Harlequin Productions, and the Olympia Film Society, to two historically designated neighborhoods and numerous historical homes, as well as some of the finest dining anywhere.
Olympia is the home of the oldest seafood restaurant in Washington, The Oyster House, which started out as the processing plant for the famed Olympia oyster. There is plenty to do for the nature lover too! Nisqually Delta Wildlife Refuge is only a few minutes away as well as Wolf Haven, a wolf sanctuary, not to mention numerous parks, miles of bike trails, and ample access to the Puget Sound.
Of course this is the capitol and the capitol building and campus are definitely worth a visit. Our capitol building is the 4th tallest domed structure of its kind in the world! The rose gardens grounds are meticulously cared for and you could spend an entire day enjoying its beauty, but don't forget the numerous museums on Washington and Olympia's history and the abundant Art Galleries and a vibrant downtown with great shopping with unique items.
From April through December our Farmers Market is open and packed with gift ideas, plants for your garden and some of the best and freshest ingredients anywhere. End the day with a walk down Percival Landing and the boardwalk to watch the sun set from the observation tower with views of the Olympics, Cascades, Mt Rainier, and the boats on Puget Sound.Random order | List Alphabetically
