Olympia is a city where everyone can find something to love. It's a city fueled by government activity, but where people enjoy the outdoors during its mild winters and warm summers. Splashed throughout the city, hiking and biking trials wander through the evergreen forests and lead to saltwater beaches.
Those looking to explore the rich heritage of Olympia can take a leisurely self-guided tour through one of many historic neighborhoods. Or stand in awe at the grandeur as you walk the steps of the Washington State Legislative Building on a free guided tour offered seven days a week.
Olympia is a perfect central location to experience the cuisine of the Pacific Northwest and is home to the largest farmers market in the state. Open throughout the year, the farmer’s market is the place to buy local and fresh produce, breads, flowers and arts and crafts, all while enjoying live entertainment.
