Downtown Olympia

Downtown Olympia is full of things to do. The other day I took my kids down to the harbor, checked out the playground, the waterfront tower and the Heritage Park Fountain. We had a blast!

Olympia Waterfront

Olympia Waterfront

The harbor is just gorgeous during the summer time especially. Looking at all the boats reminds me of how much I want one but…then I remember just how much of a money pit they are. Maybe one of these days if I happen to have lots of extra cash just laying around… :o)

The playground is lots of fun for the kiddos, I just wish it has a little bit more shade for me! Right next to the Playground is the Oly Taproom, which I have heard may good things about although I haven’t had a chance to get there myself. After playing at the park for a bit we headed over to the tower to climb up to the top and see the fountain from afar! That way the kids got to see where we were headed to.

I must say that once we got to the fountain is was crazy packed! They had a YMCA summer camp there so…lots of kids. Most of the kids were older and a bit crazy so my kids were a little hesitant to even go near the fountain, although my son did make an attempt but then got hit in the face with water and wanted nothing more to do with it.
