Living Green Olympia: Visiting Olympia State Capitol

Visiting Olympia State Capitol

Visiting Olympia State Capitol - beautiful buildings, awesome city views and more!  This time of the year, the state Legislature is in session, bringing lots of people into Olympia and onto the state Capitol campus - but year-round it can be a great place to visit.

Olympia State Capitol

The Capitol campus in Olympia draws visitors and residents alike to enjoy the mix of stately buildings and perhaps take a tour to view law making in process.  Or stroll around the grounds to view the statues and monuments saluting the men and women who have protected this country in battle and contemplate their contributions.  And you can walk or sit and enjoy the sunshine (yes, sometimes we have sunshine in Olympia!) in  lovely wide open, landscaped grounds complete with a large, elegant fountain.  At night the lights on the buildings and on the fountain create a lovely setting for the heart of Olympia, and the state.

There are also breathtaking views of Capitol Lake, Budd Inlet and the Olympics snow-topped mountains in the distance.  You can occasionally glimpse sailboats on the water or perhaps a foreign ship being loaded by the giant cranes at the Port of Olympia.

Come visit Olympia State Capitol - and stay to visit the rest of the city as well!
