Olympia, Washington's State Capital since 1853, was named for its spectacular view of the Olympic Mountains. The city is known for its tree-lined streets and elegant old homes. The Capital Building, the last great domed capital to be built in the United States, is a 28-story wonder that is a must-see for any visitor to Olympia. Self-guided tours can also be taken through the Justice Building, the Vietnam Memorial, and the World War II Memorial.
Olympia has much more to offer than government buildings and war memorials. There is also a Japanese Garden, a 1.5 mile boardwalk decorated with art and interpretive displays and the hands-on Children's Museum that are sure to make your visit to Olympia memorable.
