Many of the County Links
on the left will keep you specifically in Olympia and Thurston County here in the Puget Sound Region
of Washington state. We add new listings and links on a regular basis so bookmark this page and check back often.
Thurston County is named after Samuel R. Thurston, the Oregon Territory's first delegate to Congress. The county seat is at Olympia, the state capital and also the county's largest city.
Thurston County is conveniently situated between two major cities, Seattle, WA and Portland, OR. Mount Rainier and the rugged Cascade Mountains provide majestic scenery, ant the Pacific Ocean coast is an hour's drive to the west
Olympia, the state capital, has an impressive Capitol Building, Vietnam and World War II memorials, the State Library, Governor's Mansion, Capitol Museum and a Capitol Campus with gardens, a conservatory and vistas of Puget Sound.
Lacey, just to the north, has 425 acres of wooded parkland, four golf courses, three freshwater lakes, and several miles of protected, undeveloped Puget Sound.
