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.
