Good Eats
Wonderful, fresh authentic Mexican food. Not your typical fare. It's in the electic small town of Tenino which is worth a visit on it's own. many structures are built from 290 sandstone which can also be found at the Olympia state capital legislative building. there is an opportunity to visit with a master stonemaker who has designed and created many of the cool designs around town. there are also free bikes for your use when you come to this little town. And a couple antique shops that are filled with reasonably priced goodies.

If you're looking for a special celebratory dinner, this is the place. Their specialty is steaks, however I like it for the great happy hour selections. Although I'm a vegetarian, I find delicious non-meat options are always on the menu. Another great feature is their outdoor dining area. It's a spendy joint (and well with the price), but the happy hour is very reasonable.

Visit Olympic National Park and you'll see trees like you've never seen before! So much to explore. This huge park can be accessed from many points.... from the south head north of Hoquiam, from the west along many places on Hood Canal and from the north from Port Angeles. Awesome wilderness hiking and backpacking adventures await. And opportunities for near-deserted beach walks on our wild and windy coastline. Great place for kite-flying! There is also a driving loop of the entire park which is located on the Olympic peninsula.

Sightseeing
Stroll the well-manicured Capitol campus gardens or take a free guided tour of the Legislative building. The indoor tour is a great option on a rainy day when you've got cabin fever. We Washingtonians are very proud of our beautiful capital campus. Find the legislative gift shop in the basement of the building. It's filled with unique gifts, many of which feature Washington State.

Fishtail was the first brew pub to claim the hearts of Olympians. It was established long before brewery mania took over the country. Good beers and ciders plus a decent kitchen. My favorite place to sit is in the back room by the fireplace after a wet mushroom foray!
