Downtown’s unique energy engages the senses, gets the synapses connecting, the creativity flowing, and the fun going. Join a procession of luminaries, exchange ideas with local business owners, or vibe with some local music in the middle of the (closed) street, and you’ll feel it!
The historic downtown core. The quaint shops, cafés, and restaurants. The dazzling waterfront. Views of the Olympics and the Capitol Dome. The public art and private murals. It’s all
uniquely Olympia and here to be enjoyed.
Olympia is a haven for artists, too, with murals on walls throughout the city, art walks, galleries, theaters, and music venues. Acclaimed restaurants take up prime real estate along the waterfront, while an incredible assortment of dining opportunities abound downtown.
