Olympia and the greater Olympia area (Thurston County, with the notable cities of Lacey, Tumwater and Yelm) makes a fantastic place to call home while you explore the region. Hence we created Basecamp Olympia, your ideal location to come back to each night, with its accommodations, restaurants, live theater and arts. the Basecamp Olympia web site gives you ideas for day trips (with options to extend to short trips), plus shorter experiences, Experience Olympia.
What is Basecamp?
Olympia is your Basecamp to the surrounding area! It is the ideal place to base yourself for a few days while you explore the region. The Olympic National Park, Mount Rainier, Mount St Helens, the coast, even Seattle are all great day trips from Olympia.
Why not stay a week, one day traveling out of town and the the next staying in town and see a show, visit the Capital, wander Percival Landing, feel the vibe of the Farmers Market.
