Olympia, Washington: Capital City Along Puget Sound
Washington’s capital city, Olympia, sits along the southern end of Puget Sound on the shores of Budd Inlet. Though named after Mt. Olympus, the city has a humble, small-town feel, especially when the state legislature isn’t in session. Set on a bluff overlooking the sound, the Washington State Capitol building has an imposing presence, thanks to the granite structure’s 287-foot-high dome. On a tour you can see the dome from the inside—it’s painted with eagles and gilded rosettes. Afterwards, enjoy a fresh seafood dinner at a dockside restaurant or visit the city’s vibrant farmers’ market.
Mount Rainier, located 55 miles away, is a popular destination for day trips. Hike along a portion of the 93-mile Wonderland Trail to see beautiful lowland forests and wildflower meadows. The Northwest Trek Wildlife Park is in the nearby town of Eatonville. This 715-acre habitat is home to bison, elk, bears, and cougars.
