  • The Pilates Center of Olympia
    Pilates at Play takes its name seriously. Yes, that goes for both parts. When Trisha Hatfield Graves opened the studio in 1998, she was required to undergo a grueling three-year program and log more than 1,000 internship hours before she could claim the title of a fully certified Pilates instructor and open one of the first fully equipped studios in the Seattle area. But just because Trisha and her instructors are so focused on the strengthening and healing techniques of traditional Pilates doesn't mean they don't also know how to have fun. Their expansive 1,800-square-foot studio resembles a playground more than a gym, complete with bright colors and swings hanging from the ceiling. Besides traditional Pilates mat and equipment classes, the group leads aerial Pilates and Swing-a-lates classes that use playground swings for core-strengthening exercises, and spinal decompression. Additionally, the instructors lead pole and chair dancing classes, which draw on the principals of lyrical dance to give women a fun and flirty workout.

  • Urban Kayak
    Set on a dock on Percival Landing in downtown Olympia, Urban Kayak gives people the tools to see the picturesque oceanfront city by water. Rent a single-seat or tandem kayak and you can glide past waterfront parks, bridges, and buildings, all while burning calories and toning arm and core muscles. The stand-up paddle boarding works a little differently, though it's somewhat self-explanatory—you stand upright on a surfboard-like craft and paddle, giving you a unique view of the aquatic vegetation underfoot and the bald spots of fish.

  • Hands On Children's Museum
    A great place to visit year-round, but especially for some extra Spring Break fun, the Hands On Children's Museum opens a window to the world for youngsters. Its exhibits are all about interactive learning, whether that means role playing at a farmer's market, operating a play fire engine, or climbing a tree house to build a flying machine. These activities are part of 150 total exhibits in nine themed galleries that focus on healthy living, the arts, building, and outdoor exploration. The Puget Sound gallery features an eight-foot vortex and two-story cargo ship to teach kids about sea life, and a science table brings the miniature world around us to life with an HD digital microscope.
