Trivia night at Charlie's is a lot of fun! Not the best food choices for vegetarians, but they do have good tater tots and plenty of meat-eater options.

Really good food! But don't be surprised if there's a wait. The homemade food and blackberry jam are worth the wait. Get the biscuits with your breakfast - yum.

Essentials
Ralph's has a great selection and the produce is priced well; other items are a bit pricier here than they are at other grocery stores in town. However, it's an easy walk. Also, unlike other stores in Thurston County, they do have some free bags for your groceries.

Shopping
Olympia has an amazing year-round farmer's market. In the summertime it is open 6 days a week; in the winter it's open on the weekends, but there's shopping indoors, so it's not wet and rainy. You can get gorgeous produce as well as baked goods, dog treats, soaps, candles, woodworking...you name it!

Sightseeing
The state Capitol building is impressive inside and out, with some of the most gorgeous marble you'll ever see inside. In the summertime, the gardens are luscious, and you can walk back behind the gardens for a breathtaking view of the sound.
