Plan a Weekend to Explore the Bountiful Byway

Tasting trips throughout Washington’s Thurston County are now easier to navigate courtesy of the new Thurston Bountiful Byway self-guided tour launching this month. Dedicated to helping visitors explore the region’s more than 68,000 acres of farmland, this new printed and digital map (linked here) connects travelers to the source of the region’s best craft beverages, fresh produce and more. Thurston Bountiful Byway maps can be found at the Olympia Visitor Information Center (103 Sid Snyder Way SW) or at

Accessible by car or bike, the 60-mile route is best discovered on a multi-day trip but portions of the byway can be discovered in a day or two. Offering an experience for foodies, families and fine wine connoisseurs, highlights from the road include:

Access the Thurston Bountiful Byway from I-5 via the Nisqually Valley Exit 114, from US-101 via the Mud Bay Exit. Those looking to explore car-free can arrive via Amtrak at Centennial Station with bike in tow.  Follow along on Twitter at #BountifulByway, Instagram @BountifulByway and Facebook at
