+ From Experience Olympia and Beyond:
|If you’re crossing January off your 2022 calendar and wondering where the time has gone, we feel you. Time waits for no man. With the holidays behind us and all the possibilities of a new year ahead, it’s high time to explore and experience new things. We hope you’ll be inspired by some of what our region has to offer. Spend some time getting to know us — we’re pretty sure you won’t be disappointed. |
Spend Some Time With Your Sweetie Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. You’re a thoughtful partner, but it’s time to one-up your game plan this year. Take your dearest one on a weekend trip through Thurston County, take in one of our delightful spas, and enjoy some quality time together.
TAKE ME THERE! Trails for All Types Winter may still have it’s hold on us, but there are plenty of outdoor experiences for hearty explorers. After you’ve had your fill of fir trees, water falls and fresh air, head out to sample some of our amazing wineries and distilleries. Tumwater Falls Just south of Olympia in the historic city of Tumwater is the 15-acre Brewery Park along the Tumwater Falls of the Deschutes River. One-half mile of walking trails are highlighted by cascading waterfalls, still, reflective pools and massive rocks. Handcrafted Spirits Sip award winning ales, fine wines that have been aged to perfection and spirits that have been creatively distilled with flavor. Our local craft culture is a can’t miss adventure and each stop gives you a chance to meet the makers and savor the flavors of the South Puget Sound.
LET’S GO! DISCOVER THE MAKERS Event Highlight: Ensemble MIK Nawooj If ever we needed interaction and connection, it’s now. Feeling isolated and restricted has affected our health: mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual. We need live performances more now than ever to bring us back together, and help is on the way. Coming to The Washington Center for Performing Arts in Olympia this February is Oakland’s Hip Hop Orchestra, Ensemble MIK Nawooj. Combining classical techniques and method sampling, EMN creates awe-inspiring arrangements that have been called “the cutting edge of hip-hop” (Huffington Post). It’s a mashup of the oldest old-school and the marvelously modern.
