Arrived just too late to take the guided tour, but we were allowed to wander around inside unsupervised anyway. Got to look inside both chambers from the public viewing galleries. Most impressive and grand! They also have a gift shop

Born and raised in WA it was my first time to Olympia and it was very cool to finally see the capitol. And although my 6yo didn't get it, he will some day.

First visit to capital of WA. The thing I like about the state is there are so many different things one can do. My dad and I drove down and first went to waterfront and found a great farmer market/flea market set up with lots of variety and things to look at. Then we drove up and set by a beautiful park that is pet friendly with well marked trails and ended with walking around Capital buildings. There is a beautiful statue in round about for WW2 honoring soldiers, nurses, and sailors. Also there was a great fountain to sit and reflect by. We were pressed for time, but slowed down to enjoy this and it was time spent well.
