So after a number of misfires and the like, we are having another stab at making Basecamp Olympia my perfect idea of tourism for Olympia. Olympia as your basecamp. Not Lacey or Tumwater, although they would fit only slightly less. Olympia has better walk-ability than its neighbors, especially when you are staying with us at the Swantown Inn Bed & Breakfast.
Unlike other tourism entities we do not have to be politically correct and all inclusive. Lets talk plainly. Olympia has the best farmers market, local attractions (Hands On Children’s Museum, WET Science Center), it has access to the sound at Percival Landing, great restaurants, and friendly residents. Is it perfect? No! Far from it. However it is a great place for tourists visiting our area to base themselves and reach out to nearby national parks and monuments, attractions or even just to chill out and relax.
We will be editing some of our posts to take out the “timing” and just showcase the event or attraction. Tweaking until the site is fully populated with all of our top suggestions.
If you own a business, attraction or tourism related entity let us know and we will add it to the site.
Of course this site is primarily here to help drive bookings to our Olympia B&B.
