Olympia, Washington: O-Town and Capital of Washington

Olympia, Washington is the capital city and home of over 48,000 residents. On the south end of Puget Sound, the marine west coast climate provides the city with brisk fog and dribbling rain for most of the year. Olympia is a fairly young city, with the majority age ranging from thirty to forty years old. It’s right next to Tacoma, Federal Way, and Tumwater, Washington.

Great City and Friends Olympia, Washington

Washington’s capital may be small, but it has a large variety and array of public parks, including Priest Point Park, Burfoot Park, and Sunrise Park. One of my friends, Richard Beer, the Dean of Business at Saint Martin’s University calls Olympia home. He is doing wonderful things there! I’ve loved the times I’ve visited. I think Olympia is one of the best-kept secrets of all of Washington. It’s pristine, yet small enough not to be overwhelming.
