"Olympia...a long way from Greece" Olympia by Ewingjr98

Olympia Travel Guide: 120 reviews and 454 photos

Olympia seemed to be a nice little town, but not much like its namesake in Greece. This Olympia seems very funky with lots of old hippies and an abundance of young kids with odd orange and pink hair.

Olympia was founded in the 1840s and was named after the nearby Olympic Mountains in 1853. Today the small town of about 40,000 is the capital of Washington.
