As the sun peeks through the cloud cover in the Pacific Northwest sky and as daylight lingers throughout the summer evenings, opportunities abound to create lasting memories with family and loved ones. Whether searching for seals in a kayak on Budd Bay, a bike ride along a converted railroad corridor or sunset picnic overlooking the Olympia skyline, families can create their own outdoor daycation by exploring the water, greenery and cuisine of the South Sound.
As Thurston County gradually reopens under Governor Jay Inslee’s Safe Start Washington, Experience Olympia & Beyond is helping families to reconnect and create meaningful moments in Thurston County. Ideal for families, many local daycation ideas are highlighted through the Experience Olympia blog, including a variety of outdoor activities for families to reunite safely under sunny summer skies.
As local attractions and businesses reopen, and as non-essential travel is allowed to resume, there has been a growing interest in local vacation destinations, according to Shauna Stewart, CEO of Experience Olympia & Beyond. Stewart says that for many households, safely reconnecting with family members has led to increase in outdoor day trips and local daycations.
