“As Thurston County residents venture outside in search of summertime adventure, local travelers can take the scenic route and explore a new side to the region along the Thurston Bountiful Byway. From Olympia to Yelm, the Thurston Bountiful Byway lines many of Thurston County’s tightknit communities and is bustling with shops and stops along the way. The Thurston Bountiful Byway calls for a local daycation, to reset, explore and experience what makes Thurston County decidedly different.
“Looping around the communities of Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater, Rochester, Tenino and Yelm, the 60-mile Thurston Bountiful Byway spans many diverse landscapes of the Pacific Northwest.

Heading west, the byway boarders the Capitol State Forest, before it concludes near Mud Bay Road and Delphi Road in West Olympia.” by Molly Walsh, via Thurston Talk. Read more
