What Bert Has To Say About Olympia-Tumwater Metro Area

Olympia is one of the more attractive capital cities in the United States. While there is heavy industry to the north toward Tacoma, Olympia is a clean, mid-sized capital city with a distinctively Pacific Northwest small-town feel. Outdoor recreational opportunities are abundant; Olympic National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, and the Washington coast are all within a day’s drive. Excellent city amenities and services are available in Seattle, although traffic can make the drive challenging.
