Downtown Olympia is nestled at the southern-most tip of Puget Sound, beneath Mt. Rainier and within sight of the majestic Olympic mountains.
One of the oldest communities and the capital city of Washington State, Olympia, population 46,100, is a city with a cosmopolitan flair and is rich in heritage, diversity and culture.
Parks, marinas, fountains and a popular public boardwalk await you in the waterfront area. An easy stroll up Capitol Way takes you to downtown’s southern neighbor, the State Capitol Campus. Downtown Olympia’s blend of historic buildings, beautiful scenery and eclectic retail and dining experiences offer an undeniable appeal to visitors and residents alike.
The Olympia Downtown Association’s mission is to preserve, promote and enhance the downtown Olympia community. We encourage you to shop, dine and recreate in downtown.
